Jean W Bell (McNeil)
Jean prefers to experience the landscape while walking, (although she quite likes the challenge of working outside as well) and works later in her studio using images and impressions of what she has seen.
Jean, on the other hand, tossed a coin to decide whether to accept her admission to the Glasgow School of Art or to go to P.E. college. In light of her present love for painting she now feels that, perhaps, she did not make the best choice when she decided to go to P.E. college where she studied creative dance and then went on to teach in secondary schools until her children were born. However her interest in painting still continued and she was helped by a colleague of Don’s, Jim Davis, and then, eventually, with Don himself, when they came together in 1995.
