Jean is back as an artist at Studio Borgerstein after several years of absence. With his quiet personality, he brings warmth to the studio. Jean has worked a lot with colored pencil in the past and had a great fondness for birds. That hasn’t changed, although he will now more readily choose to do portraits as well. He has also come back with a goal: learning to paint. With acrylic paints, he sets to work with patience, asking questions and learning quickly. Jean has already painted some large, eccentric portraits on cardboard in recent months. He has very recognizable line and is strong in choosing the right colors. With a good dose of humor and self-deprecation, he makes real characters out of his portraits.
