Artist Info

BIO

Jean Morrow is a Canadian artist who has developed a unique abstract painting style with her paintings resembling glass on canvas. Crisp clean lines, a sense of movement and energy, and bold colors are some of the qualities that immediately identify a painting as one of hers.

It has taken many years of study and work to perfect this technique. The abstract paintings are created using acrylic paints and mediums.

Her paintings are in many private collections across North America. Jean strongly believes that original art should be affordable and accessible.

She grew up in Ottawa, Ontario and has been painting for over 25 years. In 2010 she moved to Almonte, Ontario to devote herself to painting full time and to open the Morrow Gallery and Studio in the Thoburn Mill.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

“Making art is my passion in life. It’s my way of expressing myself. Creating something, which I find beautiful is extremely satisfying. I lose myself in the process, hours pass by without notice, and everyday worries disappear.

 Over the years my painting style has evolved. I’ve spent many years perfecting my current technique. It allows me to create the dramatic look and feel of my work. The contrast between the raw canvas and the slick wet look of the paint creates a wonderful counterbalance.

 The process also has an element of the unknown. After I’m finished with the painting the paint continues to move organically which adds an element of surprise which I love.”
