Jean Reasoner Plunket

Born into a family of artists, Jean Reasoner Plunket's earliest interest was drawing and it was people she enjoyed drawing most. Having posed for her mother, Gladys Thayer Reasoner, as a small child and for renowned painter, Eugene Speicher, as an adolescent, Jean expreienced portraiture from "both sides of the table."

As the 21st century unfolds, Jean still draws people the old-fashioned way - from life - and her elite corps of sitters has grown to over 12,000, with more than 8,000 holding a special place in her unique sketch file, begun in 1953. Her thousands of subjects are the Faces That Won't Sit Still.
