It’s a wonderful experience. Weather effects and the feel of a place seem to me to be more easily expressed with watercolor.” With bachelor’s degrees from the University of Arizona in both Architecture and Interiors, architectural subjects especially interest Jean. As a fourth generation Arizona native, born and raised in Bisbee, Jean appreciates Arizona’s unique subject matter and landscapes. She also enjoys...
