More About the Author

Hi! My name is Jean. Thanks so much for stopping by. I live with my husband and two daughters in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. I love homemade cherry-almond scones, am a dedicated springtime gardener (but a lazy summer one), and read way too many books.

I am passionate about kids' art and creativity.
I want you to be passionate about them, too.

Creativity, arguably the most important skill of the 21st century, starts at home! I'm hoping that my book, "The Artful Parent: Simple Ways to Fill Your Family's Life with Art and Creativity" will help you to encourage your kids to be their best, most creative selves and to have a blast in the process!

Besides writing books, I also write a blog, ArtfulParent.com, where I share
ideas, information, and inspiration to encourage you to enjoy and share art with the kids in your life (whether in your home or your classroom). I regularly post simple and fun children's art activities as well as our adventures in the kitchen and outdoors, children's literature we love, and creative play ideas.

I have followed 'The Artful Parent' blog for some time and have also purchased the season activity guides that the author sells on her site. This is a wonderful book that you can refer to on a regular basis and will help your artistic enjoyment and curiosity flourish as a family over time and through the years. The art activities are about process rather than product and there are really helpful parts about how to speak to your child about their creation and what are good materials for each age group. This book has made art seem doable and more fun. We have been at home a lot recently due to illness and this book has really helped to brighten up our days. You don't need to be a great artist yourself to enjoy using this book with your children, but it will also work for you if you are.

This is a wonderful book for any parent wanting to explore more art with their kids. Jean makes art simple and accessible for all - with no need for "experience or art degrees". Truly inspirational.

My book has been referred to weekly since I got it 5 months ago.The ideas are easy to follow, fun to do & there's so many! I especially love the photographs used throughout & it has been very well written,it's truly an enjoyable read.
I have had further books referred to in the back pages from the library & began following new bloggers.
This is a great book for family arts & crafts to refer to or as a gift to a crafty parent who would enjoy new ideas.
Im very pleased with the book
