Jean was born in Saint Ouen, Jersey, the son of Nicholas Jean and Marie Grandin. He was at first in the English Royal Navy, but later devoted himself to painting. He was chiefly a miniaturist, yet also worked with oils.
While settled in London, Jean 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
