In January of 2015 we welcomed Jean to the gallery and were charmed with her energy, use of color and most of all, her subject matter. We first saw her work in the 2013 Artsbridge Annual Juried Show, where she took the Postcard & Publicity and Best Contemporary Painting awards. She truly captures the feel of a quiet afternoon in Lumberville or a bustling sidewalk on a Doylestown evening. Jean has established a faithful following among collectors of Bucks County art.
Jean Childs Buzgo
Jean enjoys painting contemporary street scenes of local towns conveying their charm and quaint architecture. Her floral studies and interiors draw the viewer in for a closer look. Jean's landscapes feature area landmarks, farms, bridges, and waterways. Her scenes are often described as having a strong compositional serenity paired with energetic brushstrokes. Her brushwork conveys a sense of movement, filling the viewer with the feeling of the wind blowing through the trees, water flowing or the clouds floating by. The use of vibrant color and light effects move your eye through her paintings.
Her studio is in Bucks County, PA where her artwork continues to evolve. Jean is an award-winning, full-time oil painter. Jean received her BFA at The College of New Jersey and graduated with honors with a specialization in packaging design. She won Best Packaging Design in the Student Art Show and Best Portfolio for her graduating class in 1995. For many years, Jean was both an in-house and a freelance packaging/graphic designer for bath, home fragrance and consumer health products both nationally and internationally.
In 2008, Jean decided to pursue her life-long dream of being an oil painter, and began studying with various professional painters in the area. She is primarily self-taught, continuing her learning through daily work in her studio. She was successful exhibiting and selling her artwork in local Bucks County galleries and highly competitive shows. She is a former member of The Artists of Yardley, Artsbridge, The New Hope Art League, New Hope Arts and The Philadelphia Sketch Club. Jean launched her website in January of 2012 to begin showing the full scope of her work online.
Jean Childs Buzgo has completed many pieces of commission work through the years, such as "29 S. Borad Street", shown here. Please contact the Silverman Gallery for more information.
