February 17, 2012 (San Carlos) – Water color and collage artist Jean Waters will be the featured artist at the San Carlos Library from now through March 1.  A reception will be held Saturday, February 18 from 12-2 p.m. 

“Her paintings will bring a genuine smile to your face,” said fellow artist Chuck McPherson in an e-mail to ECM.  “I mean really who doesn’t LOVE kittens!?!”  For details, visit



As a child, Waters was interested in the arts. However, she was guided into a teaching career, receiving a Master’s Degree in Librarianship. Then, eventually, she was able to pursue her love of art fulltime. 
In 2002, Jean joined the San Diego Watercolor Society and Foothills Art Association, and began exhibiting her art, winning awards in both associations.  Most recently, her Rhythm and Blues, took a first place.   Her work has also been shown at St. Claire’s Gallery in El Cajon, at the 10th Avenue Theatre and Art Centre in San Diego, and at San Diego Hospice.

A friend and talent!

Jean Waters is a marvelous talent and a dear friend who helped introduce me, as a new artist in 2008, to my "art family" at the San Diego Watercolor Society. She served as my Member Shows Co-director at SDWS and we made a great team! I admire and respect her contributions as a fine artist and lovely human being. Thanks, Jean for being the jewel you are. And for those of you who collect, as I do, Jean is a great investment! Check out her site:
