About the Artist

 I grew up riding horseback along winding trails, through running creeks, up and around rocky paths, and listening to my horse’s rhythmic clopping. I remember feeling the wind swirl my long brown hair and savoring the feel of branches palming my face. In this sacred silence, my hands naturally grabbed at trees and bushes, smelling pine boughs closely--leaving their pungent resin on my fingers, grazing peeling barks, and reaching for blackberries from wild, pregnant bushes. This is why I paint landscape. It is the air I breathe, the dirt, sticks, brush, and bramble I've riden and hiked, and the turbulent storms I crave for their mood inducing power and cooling moisture. Hot, cold, rainy; hurricanes, heat waves, and the blinding whiteness of abundant snow—these sensations I bring you through paint.

 

An Augusta, Georgia native, Ms. Jones earned a Bachelors of Fine Art in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia, a Masters of Liberal Arts in Fine Art from Spring Hill College, a Masters of Arts in Cinema Studies from Savannah College of Art and Design, and participated in the University of Georgia's Cortona, Italy Summer program. Her studio is in her home and welcomes visitors by appointment.
