The art of Jean R. Joslin will be on view in our Conference Room Art Show through February. The artist will be present on Sundays during Fellowship between services. Of her art and background, Ms. Joslin shares the following. See her work at jeanrjoslin.com.
I am an Artist and Art Therapist. I have always loved drawing and painting, with a special passion for landscapes. Much of my inspiration comes from places I have visited or lived, such as Nantucket Island, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia and central New Jersey. I enjoy plein-air painting locally in the beautiful farms and parks of the Delaware Valley. Lately, I have been having fun creating a small, 6”x6” “painting a day” as a way to simplify focus and practice my skills as a painter. I will to try add my new paintings to the show every week so you will find something new to see each Sunday!
As an Art Therapist, I have used my skills, knowledge and love of creating art as a means to help and inspire others. My experience includes 15 years at Princeton House Behavioral Health, Women’s Programs. I am always in awe of the power of art-making as a means for healing and creating connections to self and others.
I have exhibited and sold my artwork at Nantucket Artworks Gallery in Nantucket, Massachusetts; Chambers Walk Restaurant in Lawrenceville; and in the Ellarslie Open Juried Show at the Trenton Museum; and Small World Coffee in Princeton on Witherspoon Street. I was also a founding member of the Lawrenceville Artists Network.
I received a Bachelor of Arts at Denison University and a Masters in Art Therapy at New York University; studied at The Art Students League and The School of Visual Arts in New York City, and have participated in oil painting workshops in New Jersey, Philadelphia and Charleston, South Carolina.
