Jean Meisel has been painting and exhibiting her work in the Washington area, where she has lived, for the last fifty-five years. A diverse artist, she paints not only seascapes and landscapes, but abstract works as well all of which are in a wide and varied range of sizes. The simplicity of her current seascape series demonstrates her love for the forms and color.
