Jean is an international artist, not only selling her work throughout the UK but also Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany and as far away as North America, Mexico, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.
In 1954 Jean was invited to become a Windmill Girl at the famous Windmill Theatre in the West End of London. She worked with such greats as Harry Secombe and Bruce Forsyth during her time there.
Due to Jean’s cabaret act, she’d been invited to spend some time in The United States during the 70’s to represent The United Kingdom and ‘Britishness’. Jean performed at venues such as the Chicago Hilton Hotel and the Carlton Hotel, New York. Whilst in the USA Jean became a regular on the Joey Adams’ chat show, ‘Coast to Coast’.
Jean returned to England in the 80’s and was often seen on British television. She worked on shows such as ‘Hi-de-hi’, ‘EastEnders’ and appeared in many TV ads. All the while working on the British cabaret circuit as an established performer.
Jean retired from show business in the early 90’s and began painting, it started out as a hobby but she quickly realised she had a natural talent for art.
Jean then decided to take her art more seriously and this led to her attaining a BA Honours degree in Fine Art in 2002. Since gaining her Degree, Jean’s new found career as an artist has gone from strength to strength.
