SHEREE JONES

A respected teacher & mentor, Sheree ' s enthusiastic energy brings inspiration to all who come to work with her.

Teaching Philosophy:
“ I believe in sharing my love and knowledge of painting in a relaxed & encouraging environment.

I take great pleasure in guiding students through their own creative process, encouraging them to listen to their own voice. ”


“ My love of colour, of texture in fabrics, of shifting light in the landscape gives me the inspiration to put paint to canvas. Drawing from these elements, creating line, shape and form with strong design is what brings me to my easel each and every day. ”
