Jean Canter painted meticulously detailed landscape pictures in a distinctive style. - look at the dimensions of the examples shown to see that they are relatively small. The media she typically used were gouache, as in these examples, or watercolour.
She was born and lived in Epsom, Surrey and studied at the local School of Art and Wimbledon School of Art. She became a member of the Society of Graphic Fine Artist (SGFA) in 1977, was President from 1994-99 and was a prize winner at a number of SGFA exhibitions. She also exhibited at many other events such as the RWS Open, RMS, RSMA, ROI, SBA, UA, PS and other occasional shows.
From 1972 she taught classes in watercolour painting, drawing techniques, gouache and flower painting at Adult Education courses in her local area. Her work was reproduced in many "How-to-do-it" art books for Quarto Publishing and in "Back to Basics" demonstrations in the "Artists and Illustrators" magazine and she supplied other articles also for the latter. Also contributed to "The Drawing Class" articles in Painting World from 1999-2001. Other paintings and drawings by the artist are shown below.
