For about 40 years now, Ulen native Jean Harney has been a painter.

Whether it's oils, acrylics, silk screen (a form of print making known as serigraphy) or her current favorite medium, watercolors, Harney has always loved the thrill of creating her own artwork.


"I've always drawn things," she says. "I minored in art in college, and when I got married, I started painting."
