Jean Edelstein seeks the sacred. As she deploys the creative to approach the Divine, her art resonates with spirit. Edelstein's elegant aesthetic is melded with finely honed craftsmanship and expansive inventiveness into abstract icons, inspirational figural studies, innovative performances and compassionate political commentaries.

"Jean Edelstein will tell you she creates the books for herself. The reality is that her books are graceful, playful, full of energy and beg to be shared. Her books are about finding peace and harmony, and nourishing the senses. The books are filled with images she captures in line and color, reflecting a timeless beauty.

Her books are a portrait of life, filled with joyous spirit and exuberance for art." – Georgia Freedman-Harvey, Curator, Platt/Borstein Galleries, American Jewish University, Los Angeles
