About the Artist

Sister Jean Gent,
porcelain artist

Sister Jean, who had always wanted to paint, started with drawing later in life, with the intent that she would move on to oil painting.  She was living in Eugene, Oregon and ran into an accomplished artist who offered to teach her how to paint with oils.  After a year and a half, her teacher was no longer able to work with Jean and Jean's sister, Marie Weeks, a well-known porcelain artist, convinced her to start working with porcelain.  She immediately found her niche and has been practicing for more than ten years now.

Earlier in life, Sister served as elementary teacher, principal and health care provider.  She says of herself, " I feel my life has been quite simple, sharing with others a certain "calmness."  I take to a roll of supporting more than one of leadership.  For the most part, I am a friendly eager, quiet person."
