Sheree Jones is an artist and oil painter living in North Vancouver. She has been passionate about her art since “the age of crayons”.
An active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists & Plein Air BC, her work can be found in numerous collections around the globe.
She leads workshops in her personal teaching studio & on plein air adventures throughout BC and internationally. She also teaches a number of popular courses for the West Vancouver district.
As a respected teacher and mentor, Sheree’s enthusiastic energy brings inspiration to all those who come to work with her. 

“My creative journey has taken me down many paths. I am a keen outdoor ‘plein air’ painter, preferring to capture my subjects directly from life. I carry my painting gear wherever I travel, from Costa Rica to Spain, Sicily and Italy. From California to Wyoming and many of my favourite BC Gulf Islands. Painting from life be it the landscape, a still life set up in the studio or the human figure is an essential part of my art practice. I find painting plein air to be the most rewarding.”

Teaching Philosophy:
“I believe in sharing my love and knowledge of painting in a relaxed and encouraging environment. I take great pleasure in guiding students through their own creative process, encouraging them to listen to their own voice.”

Artist Statement:
“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.”
