Limited edition prints of my work are available. Please visit my shop at etsy.

My artwork is inspired by realistic subjects which I then abstract or stylise. I particularly enjoy using buildings and plants. I may use photos or my drawings-often computer drawn ones- as a basis, but will then change the colours and add details from imagination or memory, or simply just use the latter to construct a picture. I love taking a quick glance at a scene and simplifying what is in reality very complicated, often by placing a mental "frame" around it -a skill etched on my memory from City and Guilds Embroidery courses. I also enjoy making fantasy artwork, again from my imagination or what is my idea of characters from myth, legend and stories.

I work mainly in watercolour-paint and pencil, felt and gel pens, coloured pencils, inks. I sometimes add texture in the form of a magazine cutting, or other papers or threads/fabric etc. My cats enjoy my art and will help by drinking excess paint flavoured water, sitting on a painting to keep it warm, and grabbing my hand or brush to just make a mark where they see fit. I don't think anyone buying my work would want a subtle cat-hair texture however, so I carefully remove this before offering it for sale!

I would like people to enjoy my art in the sense of seeing a different way of viewing things, and experiencing hopefully the atmosphere and mood that I'm trying to convey.

Jean Levert Hood

Texas Hill Country Painter

I paint with bold, clean strokes, thick with rich, sometimes surprising, colors that express what I see and feel when painting. My hope is that in the end I have engaged the emotions those who view my work.

I begin long before I pick up my brushes using design and composition principles to outline the work. I then paint with abandon and joy. The resulting work shows my personal application of impressionism with a minimalist quality.

Often inspiration comes from what I see walking on my ranch on the historically rich, brushy edge of the Texas Hill Country. Here daily, I encounter constant contrasts and variety in texture and color - the dichotomy of harmony and discord; lushness and barrenness; serenity and energy.

My challenge is to show the complexity of creation by painting intimate, personal portraits of nature. Whether choosing a landscape or still life, close observation reveals the ordinary as extraordinary.

Please visit my Art blog for weekly updates on my work and life around the Texas Hill Country.

Jean Levert Hood describes best her artwork- they show her personal application of impressionism with minimalist quality. Her artworks can be considered extra ordinary for its tones, vibrant colors and creative spirit. She reaches out with her heart and soul each time she paints and it seems that she is always teeming with inspiration. Her range of subject is so diverse that it seems that she learned to commune with nature at its deepest level. Her impressionist paintings are incredible and brings to memory the masterpieces of the impressionist masters of the past like- Renoir, Monet, Cezanne and others. Truly her works are a delight to behold. I highly recommend her works of art which are still very affordable.
