Jean Jewer is an interdisciplinary artist addressing themes of identity, memory and impermanence while working across various mediums including painting, photography and printmaking. A native of Newfoundland, Jewer was brought up on the remote coast of the island in a small fishing community on the Northern Peninsula. The resonance of her past has a vital presence in the production of her current work. She studied Fine Arts at the University of Manitoba, has exhibited extensively across Canada and her work can be found in corporate and private collections nationally and abroad. For a number of years, she was a member of the Blink Gallery Collective in Ottawa where she contributed to the operation of the non-profit gallery.
