About the author:
Jean Bohuslav started painting tonally at a young age and after attending Swinburne University was accepted into the Victorian College of the Arts and Monash University. While working with a group of women at Healesville for some years, her style akin to expressionism became more painterly. Becoming intrigued with oil and wax medium she moved onto melting wax onto the canvas in various layers. The finished works refer to her philosophical interests and to her own life. Bohuslav has sold well around Melbourne including Montsalvat in Eltham and upon taking up residency on the Surf Coast has been exhibiting in this area and at Castlemaine where she has family. Bohuslav has tutored practical philosophy – the art of living for many years at various venues around Melbourne and for the last several years in regions of The Surf Coast at Geelong, Ocean Grove and Torquay.
