Jean Williard has always loved horses, drawing them from the time she was very small.  Her mother who was a portrait painter who discouraged her from pursuing her art, telling her” you have to be great to succeed”. Jean became an academic, receiving her doctorate in Developmental Psychology, teaching as an adjunct professor and working with children with behavioral and developmental problems.

 

 

 

“Downhill” by Jean Williard

 

 

Jean’s family could never afford a horse, so when she received a graduation check from her parents, she bought her first horse.  Her horses became her passion.  Years later when her mother came to live with her, she retired from her profession and after her mother passed away, Jean’s daughter suggested they take an art course together.

 

  

 

“Chucker” by Jean Williard

 

 

 Once she had  enrolled in a sculpture course she was hooked!  She has moved from working with ceramic clay to oil based clay and has been winning awards for her sculptures ever since.  She is delighted to have rediscovered herself at this point in her life.  She displays her beautiful sculptures in the Wellington Galleries and the LighthouseArtCenter in Tequesta. Jean says “I hope I can share this enthusiasm and love for horses with you”.
