Jean Davidson is an artist who works in various mediums.  She has not had a traditional art school education but has taken classes and workshops and has studied extensively to develop her skills.  She likes to explore new ideas that challenge her creativity.  She has worked in collage, pastel, acrylics, pen and ink, watercolor, photography, paper making, and printmaking with an emphasis on monotype (monoprint) and block printing.  Her subject matter includes, florals, scenery, abstracts and other things. 
Her latest interest is in abstract art which can be done using various media or mixing them together.  When creating abstracts Jean chooses a limited pallet of colors and often starts by putting paint to paper in some fashion. Then she looks to see what what ideas are suggested.  She works by constantly stopping to observe the process.  It is like having a dialogue with the work.  What element of design is needed to move the development of the work forward? What color or shape is needed for balance or variety?  What is needed to unify the design?  The dialogue is never ending and always a challenge.

Jean is a member of five art associations, a camera club and the Printmaking Center of New Jersey.  She has held a wide variety of positions in a number of these groups and was president of two of them.
The artist has had several one woman shows and has shown work in many juried exhibits in New Jersey, which include the New Jersey Watercolor Society. the Paper Mill Gallery in Millburn, and the Ben Shawn Gallery at William Patterson University.  She has also been an invited exhibitor with the yearly Wilson School Exhibit in Mountain Lakes (now discontinued) for eleven years.  Jean Davidson has won awards for watercolor, monoprints, collage, pastels, paper making, and photography.
