Jean May Parsons

1952 - 2017

Jean was a self-taught artist living in the South Hams. Painting started as a hobby, but gradually became a more important part of her life.

She worked mainly in watercolour and acrylic, reflecting, primarily her love of colour. Early inspiration came from a trip to Venice, where she was overwhelmed by the beauty of the architecture reflected in water. 

Jean was a member of Plymouth Watercolour Society and Plymouth Arts Club. Her wonderful paintings are in collections in this country and abroad.
