Jean Fitzgerald is a North Carolina impressionist painter. She received her BA in Art from Western Kentucky University and also studied at the Corcoran College of Art and Design, and with Jack Beal and Sondra Freckleton. She taught watercolor workshops, and sold her artwork at outdoor art festivals and in galleries in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina. She has worked in oils, watercolors, and acrylics. Her impressionistic oil still life and floral paintings reflect her love of gardening and the beautiful gardens and countryside of North Carolina. The shapes and colors of flowers are endlessly fascinating and provide inspiration for her colorful oil paintings. As well as large paintings she paints many small affordable paintings. She currently resides in North Carolina with her husband, the author Michael Hammonds and her Golden Retriever, Bentley.
