Artist's Statement
My paintings are a way of expressing and capturing that which is special in the world. I work in fluid acrylics because of their transparant and spontaneous nature. Although my subject matter varies, my compositions emphasize strong design, high value contrast and unique color combinations. Using the layering technique allows me to develop subtle color changes and passages that glow through the final painting. This helps me to create the feeling of movement and depth that I love to express and enables me to share my personal interpretations with the viewers.
A native of New York City, Jean Kelly NWS has studied fine art at New York University, Parsons School of Design, Pratt Graphics and School of Visual Arts. She is a Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society, an Associate Member of the American Watercolor Society and a member of several New Jersey Art Associations. She has been frequently juried into regional and international art shows. Many of her works have been repreoduced on cards and ceramic gift items which are sold internationally.
Jean takes great joy in teaching and has offered a variety of courses in Experimental Watermedia Painting, demonstrations and workshops in recent years. Instructing, in Jean's view is the means by which she can help others achieve confidence and success in sharing their own personal, creative interpretations.
Classes include demonstrations of different mixed media methods of preparing and enriching the painting surface as well as interesting ways of integrating collage and mediums into the painting process. Techniques explored include innovative combinations to help expand the student's artistic resources and develop new ways to express their personal vision.
Classes are offered through The Morris County Art Association, Morristown, New Jersey.
