Range of Work
Jones is best known for her design and woven work in the tapestry medium. This is a selection spanning the length of her career, since she graduated from The National School for Decorative Art in France in 1983, completed solo or in collaboration with trained weavers.
Working in a variety of media, Jones explores the fusion between subject and expression. Often the subject invokes a style or colour scheme, with metaphoric representation enhanced by a limited palette and/or collaging of imagery.
Painting on Textile
Fabric paint on linen has served Jones as the medium of choice for commissions involving textile works for site-specific application where the artist and client assess that a hand woven tapestry is not suitable. Finished works on linen have a characteristic textile softness and swag, without the insurance concerns or vulnerability to sunlight of an heirloom tapestry.
Jones works with clients on interior and exterior wall mural projects. Often the site-specific concerns dominate, and the client and artist agree to serve the site and its use in finding a relevant design. Jones works alone or with a team to complete the work (in situ for exterior /in studio for interior application).
Jones combines hand-made glass sheets with magnifying lens and contrasting geometric inlays, for site-specific application.
Wool carpets are designed by Jones and sent to be hand-tufted at a reputable carpet factory in India. Custom orders are accepted upon job analysis.
Jones creates designs for the needlepoint enthusiast to complete.
