Contact

I am a French-American painter. And an occasional film animator (some of my film animation work is viewable at www.jeanpierrejacquet.com). For many years, it was the other way around. I devote most of my painting activities to "plein air" painting, or, as the French say, "peinture sur le motif", i.e on the spot painting.
I like to paint what I see, rather than what I know, and try to uncover the hidden designs in my subject matters, be it straight nature scenes or urban landscapes. I am partial to free and bold brushstrokes which help me keep a certain sketchiness to my paintings.
My influences are eclectic so I will spare you a useless enumeration.
My work has been part a number of group and solo shows:

2004 Bendheim Gallery, Greenwich CT - Group Show.
2006 Galerie Jean Renoir, Paris - Solo Show.
