Gill Jones

About Gill Jones

I originally qualified with a B.Ed in Creative & Performing Arts which I taught for many years, later becoming the Director of Courses at an Arts Centre and then a member of the Education Advisory Service helping schools develop their drama and dance curriculum.  I was also co-director of the County Youth Theatre and founded and directed its Youth Dance Company.

I continued to paint and draw the moors and shores of North Devon when time and an enthusiasm for  sailing permitted.

In 2011 I gained First Class Honours in a B.A. in Fine Art having decided to challenge myself and explore new ideas and techniques, including film and photography.  My subject was the human figure and the Vulnerability of Man.  Records of this work can be found in the Women's Art Section in Goldsmiths Special Collections Library.

Currently I am working in a very free and impressionistic way with watercolours, acrylics and diverse printmaking techniques, and also continue to work with images of the human form.

I have exhibited in Devon, in Oxford and in London and my work has sold as far away as Australia.

As well as in my own studio in Barnstaple, work can also be found in the Portland Gallery, Portland Street, Ilfracombe; The Folio Studio, Ilfracombe; The Jill Rousseau Gallery, Cooper Street, Bideford; The Reed Gallery, Bude Street, Appledore; The Square Studio, Northam & Bowjangles Gallery, Bow, Crediton.

In March Jenny Smy and I will be exhibiting in the Artizan Gallery, Lucius Street, Torquay.
