Living in China Living in China was a time when studying brush control had the greatest impact on the evolution of Jean Haines’ style. Later working with artists from India and Pakistan introduced vibrant colors in her results compared to her previous more quiet watercolors created while living in Europe.

The combination of East meets West in her style is unavoidable and to be enjoyed. Free flow of water along with no fear of working directly minus the use of a preliminary sketch leads Jean to amazing results that often leave viewers of her working in awe. Light and the use of beautiful color along with the ability to take any ordinary subject and turn it into an extraordinary painting with consistently unique results is what many artists aspire to achieve. Furthermore Jean has the ability to install enthusiasm and inspirational motivation in all around her.

Jean is a member of the SWA, Society for Women Artists, and won the Anthony J Lester Award in 2009 during the SWA Annual Exhibition where her work was likened to Joseph Crawhalls from the famous Glasgow Boys. She regularly writes for art magazines and exhibits in a number of galleries.

New Book 2016 : I am delighted to announce that my next new book "Paint Yourself Calm" is now available to pre-order. This exciting new publication looks at ways to relax and de-stress whilst painting and has been sheer joy to work on.
