Jean McEelvane has curated a new online exhibition for NIAD, as well as the current NIAD Windows exhibition, "Closing Of The Year." 

Jean McElvane studied art and music at Contra Costa Community College. She also worked as an artist’s assistant.

“My art is my children. I make what I like and share it with the world. With projects I make in detail, I look at what's in front of me. Anything I've made in the past has been improved over the years through studies."

Her paintings and drawings tend toward realism, but the majority of her work is in the craft field, creating meticulously built fiber projects or using recycled and found materials to build amazing objects that capture the essence of insects and other creatures. Jean’s work has been seen recently in exhibitions at ACCI Gallery in Berkeley, Rock, Paper Scissors Collective in Oakland, and at the Richmond Art Center.
