Name: Jean Ross
Studio: Jean Ross Studio,Knave-Go-By
I work in all sorts of media. I moved to Cornwall 20 years ago because I love the clear light here which I incorporate into most of my paintings. I have won many awards, most recently the national award organized by Gold Top for which I painted a Jersey cow. This first prize has been the start of a love affair with painting cows!
In the summer I can often be found on the many glorious beaches here in Cornwall painting & sketching the children playing on the sand, and the boats at St Ives.
My main interest is in portraiture; it presents the greatest challenge! I have exhibited my portraits in The Mall Galleries in London and in The National Gallery in Edinburgh. I usually work to commission and paint all sizes of pictures. My paintings have been bought by celebrities and are in collections worldwide.
