My inspiration evolves from the myriad of nature’s gifts. The hues, shadows, textures and intensity of the colors are my passion.
As an abstract expressionist, I strive to create paintings that have a cohesive and vibrant color palette. The colors evoked in my paintings ignite a healing essence for the observer. The natural world gives me the ability to bring enlightenment to others. Each painting is infused with the energy of the world seen and unseen. Jean E Kowalski ~ Artist • Energy Therapist
BIOGRAPHY: Being raised in the midwest, I’ve had the opportunity to experience life in many towns and cities across the country. Each experience has been a transformative pathway to my creative work. My appreciation of the arts began at a very early age. I began to explore various mediums; pen & ink, pencil and clay. When my son was in high school, I came back to my art and settled with the use of acrylic paint because of the vibrancy of colors.
Currently I live and work at the base of the Rocky Mountains, in a small town called Palmer Lake. Here I am able to enjoy my grandchildren and play in the outdoors. The constant change of the landscape and weather provides a magically diverse exploration into shapes, textures and colors. The images and energy of nature are brought into the studio and infused into my paintings.
I am a self-taught artist, absorbed into rich texture and vibrant colors. At this time, I was selected by a jury and commissioned to create a Dragonfly Sculpture for the Rotary Club's largest fundraiser of the year
What others are saying Jean's work comes straight from her soul. It clearly speaks to each person who has the opportunity to view her pieces. The intensity, vibrancy and emotional impact are undeniable, and present a voice that speaks to each individual in unique translations. Her work is ideal for anyone searching for beauty and meaning.

What I love about your work is I can look at a piece several times and see something new and great each time. This one has depth and a really fresh feel to it and I love the negative space. It tells a completely different story. Love it! Thomas L. - May 2020
