Primarily self-taught, Amanda Jones has had a long love affair with landscape painting. Spontaneous by nature, Jones loves the freedom of picking up a canvas and expressing herself on it. She loves to paint nature, preferably without people. "I like my paintings to pull you in," she says. Each blank canvas is an invitation to apply lots of paint with lots of energy and see where it leads her. The influence of the Group of Seven often plays a part in her paintings. Her work reflects her love of the rhythms and patterns found in nature, from the wild Pacific shores to the majestic mountains and windblown trees.
Jones has exhibited in numerous group and solo juried shows and she has won many awards and medals for her paintings. Her work was selected to on display at the Vancouver International Airport during the 2010 Olympics.
