About the Artist
Originally from Cape Town, Jean Gilbert called New Zealand home for a decade before making the move to Perth in 2006.
Following intensive rehabilitation after a spinal cord injury, Jean embraced a few hobbies including painting. Eventually, Jean’s passion for painting became more than just a hobby; it became a source of inspiration and healing.
As a testament to her remarkable journey, Jean was honoured to be among eight people chosen to represent Australia at the 10th International Abilympics 2023, aka, the “World Skill Olympics for People with Disabilities”.
We are immensely grateful to Jean for sharing her beautiful art with us for Christmas 2023.
