Raising Autism Awareness Together


JEAN WILSON; Illustrator

A University of Windsor BFA degree and Board of Governors Medal for highest academic merit may be Illustrator Jean Wilson’s appeal when invited to teach weekend art classes or host group art shows.  More likely, it’s her interminable passion (over the past 17 years) for sharing her love of art while educating and instructing students with widespread exceptionalities.
“I’m beyond elated to illustrate my very first children’s picture book!  “Dorian’s Story” truly captures what I witness every day – how remarkable and resilient my students are!  In a sense I too am the student, for my students teach me much about the human spirit’s plasticity!  I whole-heartedly endorse Dorian’s & Tikko’s belief that it’s “Okay to be different!””

Jean resides in Barrie, Ontario with her husband Bruce and their furry companions; Ursula the cat, Oscar the Weimaraner and Bowser the bunny.  Jean would love to hear from you!   This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
