Jean Mason

Most known for her vivid and passionate musicians, Jean Mason's oil paintings depict the energy and emotion spilling from the souls of blues and jazz artists. Each painting has hidden depths and layers of meaning. Her paintings reflect a deeper human connection. Music is the fuel that ignites her paintings. It's almost as important as the canvas and the paint. Her work often relates to words from songs, things she reads or stories she hears. There are notes and scraps of paper pasted all over her studio - paintings in the simmering stage, before any brush stroke has appeared. She writes those inspirations around the outside edges of the finished paintings. There's always more to the story. She began formal art lessons at age 12. She showed work through the private art school and made her first real sale before she was officially a teenager. In high school and college and she developed an interest in theater design, painting huge backdrops for local theater companies. Jean graduated from University of Kansas with degrees in studio art and education.

Mediums: No specialty noted.
