The Well of Being

Jean-Pierre Weill

Jean-Pierre Weill was born in 1954 to Luce Weill, a writer and teacher of literature,from Normandy, France  and to Arthur Klein, an American soldier turned actor, from Carbondale, Pennsylvania.  The family moved from Paris  to New York, where he was raised with his three sisters. Weill attended  St. John’s College, in Annapolis, MD (1972- 1976).   He joined Spoken Arts, Inc., a pioneering family recording company, dedicated to  producing an audio library of  the leading English language writers and poets of the 20th Century reading from  their own works.

While dabbling in  the visual art, Weill created  a uniquely expressive mode of painting and drawing in 3-dimensional space. He calls  his multiple level glass paintings  Vitreographs™. His work has sold in hundreds of  galleries and museum outlets  throughout the U.S.,  Europe, and Japan.  He has designed original and limited-edition vitreographs  for Disney Art Editions, Inc., Warner Bros Co., and Coca-Cola, Inc..

Weill has recently written The Well of Being.  His first book, it is an illustrated inquiry about our journey to adulthood.  He  lives in Baltimore MD with his wife, Rachel Rotenberg, a sculptor. They have five children.
