Jean was born in Saint Ouen, Jersey from where he joined the Royal Navy. He later turned his hand to painting miniatures, chielfy. When he settled in London he painted portraits of many members of the British Royal Family, amongst them the portraits of George III, of the Queen Charlotte, of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and of their children. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1787 to 1802. Amongst other collections, his works belong to the Victoria and Albert Museum and Windsor Castle.
