Traditional Tibetan tangkhas (printed scroll paintings) of Buddhas and deities on handmade Nepalese papers.
Various works depicting the twelve animals according to the Tibetan astrological system, and more.
Meet the Artist, Jean Veasey, and Purchase Signed Prints.
Having grown up to the east of London, as an adult Jean moved west to Bristol where she connected with timeless wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism and in particular with its art. Inspired by her spiritual teachers but relying upon her own studies and perseverance Jean has developed into one of the first Western artists to have mastered the techniques of Buddhist tangkha painting.
Inspiration to Meditate
Alongside these profound works whose function is to inspire meditation practice and progress on the spiritual path, Jean has also produced a series of works in response to the animals and elements of the Tibetan astrological system.
