Antonia Glynne Jones is an East African painter now based near London in the UK. After earning her masters in Printmaking and having undertaken artistic training in Britain with Oliver Bevan in London and Roy Ray at the St Ives School of Painting, and in Italy and South Africa, she embarked on a career as a full-time artist. Her work captures beautiful perspectives of landscapes and seascapes, most often using the style of abstraction.
Transferring her East African Experience on the canvas
Being raised in East Africa with its intense light, red soil, infinite horizons and all the incredibly bright colours of Africa, this has compelled Antonia to find similar elements in less suspecting places. Antonia tends to explore places and landscapes for example Cornish harbours from a flattened aerial perspective with unusual colour schemes, reflecting and contrasting with her period in East Africa.
Antonia gathers her thoughts and ideas from drawing, photographing and walking in close proximity to and around the subject. Thereafter, she returns to her studio with all of these resources, where she completes small collage studies and drawings, or sometimes just painting straight from the drawing. Antonia revisits most of her subjects several times which provides her with multiple experiences, adding even more complexity to the work.
Antonia Glynne Jones has established her presence across the UK, contributed by her involvement in shows such as, The Pastel Society at the Mall Galleries in London in 2013 and the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition, London in 2016 and 2017. She hopes to extend her successes to global territories.
