Ross Jones

"After years of experimenting with different media and techniques, I have arrived at a style that works with my ideas, composition and colour palette. My paintings are all about telling stories. They are a mixture of seemingly perfect places and events. But like all good stories, not everything is as it seems.

Shadows create just enough intrigue to tip the balance between a serene or sinister scene. The result is just enough information in the composition to engage the viewer. From there it’s up to the viewer to fill in the gaps and create their own story.

I love the phrase “Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story,” so as you view my paintings, don’t let your imagination stop you from seeing the bigger picture. How far the journey takes you is entirely up to you."

Ross Jones now paints full-time, supplying galleries with his version of everyday life how he sees it.  His paintings are held in private collections in England, Ireland, North America, Australia, and New Zealand.
