Sunnyshore Studio is pleased that a long-time Dorsey friend & one of America’s premier artists, Thomas William Jones, has accepted our invitation to include three watercolor paintings in this year’s May exhibition, part of the Camano Island Studio Tour (Mother’s Day Weekend, May 12th, 13th, 14th.Encore Weekend, May 20th and 21st, 10:00am-5pm, Sunnyshore Studio #5.)
Thomas William Jones was born in Lakewood, OH in 1942 and graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1964. Jones’ watercolors have been influenced by the smaller spaces of his native OH and the vastness of the Pacific NW. Regarded as a master in watercolor, he is known for his refinement of texture and delicacy of brushwork. Jones has painted since childhood and his entire career has been devoted to fine art. He is currently represented by A.J. Kollar, Seattle Washington. Jones and his wife, Carrie, reside in Snohomish, WA.
Thomas Jones’ painting “Primroses” (Watercolor, 8.5 X 13.5) will be one of the three beautiful works of his featured. For further inquiries call Jason Dorsey at 317.209.6768.
