Jean Bradley: Biography
“People often comment, in viewing my work, that they feel the life force, the energy, in the vibrant colors and movement. It’s my expression of the magic in nature.”
Jean Bradley has always known she would be a professional artist. Art has been part of her life since childhood. Jean’s formal training in painting initially centered on oils. For the last 30 years, however, she concentrated on watercolors. The last 15 years she has exploded into acrylics. Jean has studied with nationally acclaimed artists, including John Peisley, Lisa Forster, Stephen Quiller, as well as Peter Berg, a portrait artist.
“How Did You Paint That? 100 Ways to Paint your Favorite Subject”, a book published by International Art Magazine, includes photos of Jean’s work and information describing her painting technique and style. International Artist Magazine came out with a ten-page feature article on Jean Bradley’s “Rhythm and Light” series and her “Voluptuous Papayas” is on the cover. (Feb./Mar. ’06)
