About the Artist
Jackie Jones is an artist and muralist. Her medium of choice is oil paint, charcoal, or gouache. Her artwork is rooted in the spirit of celebrating color and nature, taken from experiences living throughout the southwest, west coast, and pacific northwest. She lives with her husband and two young daughters.
This recent series of work is an unfolding of tightness and restraint from the responsibilities and limitations of living through the pandemic. From so deeply becoming aware of our physical space and the amount of room we take up, to feeling untethered and floating alone, then transitioning beyond into the grandness of community and reconciliation with oneself. My artwork always begins from an intuitive moment of color pairing or form, directed by the medium and my mood. A pause for a big sky, a daydream of figures, a simplification of shape, shadow, landscape.
