Jean Picton

Before embarking on a life as a painter, Jean had an illustrious career in the theatre, becoming a Windmill Girl at the famous Windmill Theatre in the West End of London in the 1950s, working with British treasures such as Harry Secombe and Bruce Forsyth. In the 1970s, she performed all over the USA at venues such as the Chicago Hilton Hotel and the Carlton Hotel, New York, and became a regular on the Joey Adams chat show, Coast to Coast.

In the 1980s, Jean returned to England and was often seen on British TV, featuring on shows such as Hi-de-hi, EastEnders and appearing in numerous TV ads. Simultaneously, Jean was working on the British cabaret circuit as an established performer and life was very full on! Upon retiring from show business in the early 1990s, Jean began painting as a hobby but quickly realised she had a talent for creating stunning abstract art. She decided to take her art seriously and consequently obtained an honours degree in Fine Art in 2002.

Jeanā€™s second career has been equally as successful and boasts a strong following for her visionary explosions of colour on canvas. She is truly an international artist, with her originals displayed all over Europe and as far away as North America, Mexico, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.
