As a native of Long Island, artist Jean Caiola has always enjoyed its ever changing environment. Her plein air journey begins with a camera in search of a site which seems perfect for expression on canvas. Jean's passion and challenge is mainly watercolor but also includes the techniques using various media such as water base oils, charcoal in life drawing, and hand constructed clay. Jean has entered exhibits and has participated in juried shows at libraries, private galleries, wineries, the East End Arts Gallery, Greenport galleries and Gallery North. Travel workshops are something that Jean enjoys greatly, including the Wyeth Trails Workshop, Block Island Plein Air, and Rockport, MA with Elizabeth Greaf. In 2015, Jean participated in travel workshops that visited Paris and South France. Her travel workshops will continue in May 2016 when she will travel to Tuscany, Italy with PALS. In 2002, Jean retired from corporate America in search of fulfilling her passion for the arts. She worked at East End Arts as Special Events and Volunteer Coordinator and then at Gallery North as Volunteer Coordinator and Gallery Assistant as she began to seek more time for her own work. Jean volunteers and/or is a member at the following Long Island arts organizations: North Shore Art Guild, PALS, Cygnet, North Shore Art Forum, East End Arts, Gallery North, and Long Island Art League.
