I’m Jean Damen; that’s my middle name and the street I grew up on. My medium of choice is acrylic paints on anything I can paint on. My work helps me explore everything I see or hear in life. It’s not always personal to me. Sometimes I’m inspired by people around me; especially my children. This is because there’s still so much I don’t know about the world. I feel it’s to complicated a place to say that all you need to do is be an adult to understand it. Therefore, I can only speculate and form opinions about most things and try to sound as mature as possible while doing so. My paintings give me the ability to make and receive judgments and opinions in a better light.
