Jean Summers Osher grew up in Dallas, Texas where she first developed her lifelong love of painting. She began her formal art studies as a young girl, always fascinated by the power, energy and spirit of the human form. Later, Jean graduated from U.C. Berkeley where she studied with Elmer Bischoff and Ron Kitaj. Berkeley was a rich source of energy during those years of the Bay Area Figurative Movement.Recently, Jean has returned to painting still lifes with the magical luminosity that comes from natural light. The works of Manet and Fantin - Latour have had a strong influence on her work.Jean has won several awards and her work is in collections around the U.S. She is currently an artist member of the California Art Club, a member of Oil Painters of America, The Southern California Plein Air Painter`s Association and American Women Artists. Her work is currently shown at White`s Gallery in Montrose, California. Jean lives in La Canada, California where she concentrates her time painting and teaching.BIOGRAPHY
