Collection: Jean R. Olliver

Jean was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Originally trained as a nurse at
Allentown Hospital and Moravian College, she worked for many years in the nursing
profession. Following an instinctive interest in art as a youth, she began oil painting
under the tutelage of several prominent artists in Pennsylvania and Texas. Now a
fulltime professional oil painter, she has been recognized internationally for her work.
Jean paints highly realistic still-lifes and florals. Her biggest influences in selecting still-life subjects are the treasures found in antique shops and those handed down to her by earlier generations. She derives great joy in creating beauty out of an arrangement of ordinary and simple things and strives to convey that joy to the viewer.
