“When I was a little girl I used to be playing marbles. My friends we used to always sit in the circle. Used to sit together and play the marbles after that we had to chase one another. It was called “leewar” in English its “chasey”. I used to be drawing in the sand that’s my game I always did that. Now I can paint those pictures on the canvas.” Jean Walmbeng
Jean started to paint in 2010 and is developing a fresh and distinctive style. Her keen sense and knowledge of her country inspire her vibrant paintings. She also experimented with ghost net and created bold fibre objects and sculptures.
