Artist Info

BIO

Jean Morrow is a Canadian artist who creates beautiful, unique paintings and jewelry.  A sense of movement, energy, and bold colours are some of the qualities that immediately identify a piece as one of hers.

It has taken many years of study and work to perfect her techniques. The abstract paintings and jewelry 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 historic Thoburn Mill.

In 2018 the new jewelry line was born.  The pieces are inspired by the paintings and are created using the same paints and methods.  Wearable unique art!

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

Making art is my passion in life.  It’s my way of expressing myself.  Creating something beautiful is extremely satisfying.  I often lose myself in the process and find that hours have passed by unnoticed. 

Originally I started painting landscapes using oil paints but over the years have transitioned to acrylic abstract painting.  I find the abstract painting style gives me more freedom to express myself.  Acrylic paint is extremely versatile and allows me to create some amazing effects.

I use a combination of acrylic paint with various mediums to create a bold and dramatic “wet” look that resembles glass. The same methods are used to create my jewelry line which allows me to share my original art with more people.
