About the Artist

Jill Jones

Jill Jones is an award winning, mixed media artist working in acrylics and other water media.  She has participated in juried exhibits, museum shows and solo exhibitions.  Her work is in numerous private collections and appears in magazines and zines.   

 The signature of Jill’s work is the colorful abstraction of images taking the viewer on a journey into realms of expression and imagination.  Acrylics, collage and other water media are layered with pattern, texture and personal symbols to create visions of internal worlds.  Her monotype printmaking is another facet of her mixed media explorations.

Jill is also a certified creativity coach, writer and instructor.  She teaches art and creativity courses and shares her passion for the creative process through her coaching practice, Coach the Arts, www.coachthearts.com

 Jill co-authors "Artist Spotlight" columns that appear weekly in the Press Enterprise.  Jill’s essays and illustrations appear in Kaleidoscope:  Ideas and Projects to Spark Your Creativity, a North Light Book .  She wrote and illustrated the “ARTsparks” column for ARTitude  zine and for several years self-published an art/creativity zine called BrainWaves. 

 Jill lives in sunny Southern California with her encouraging husband, Bill, and an enthusiastically eclectic collection of art.
