Jeremy A. Jones, CWS
Jeremy has enjoyed painting ever since he ran away at the age of four and did a mural in a neighbor’s garage. The adults were so excited! Later he was busy in school drawing all the time regardless of what the class was doing. How did he get away with that? He was finally able to take a few art courses at the University of Washington but then his architectural career got in the way. He was able to create ceramic tile murals, furnishing design, stained glass and graphic art for many of his 500 buildings projects. This included hundreds of sketches and paintings of building designs even after learning 3Dcomputer illustration. An abstract paintings was also selected as one of 25 for a national “AIA Art by Architects” show in Washington, D.C.. He was also awarded the Arizona Architects Medal for leadership and award winning design of environmentally-advanced buildings.
In 2008 he joined the Arizona Watercolor Association and began taking workshops and served as President for three years. While traveling the world with wife Barbara, he found time to do sketches then branched into every media and subject he could find. He spent two weeks as Artist-in-Residence at Crater Lake illustrating for the scientists and the public. Now he focuses on realistic watercolors, abstract water media and surrealistic images that help people see their own world in a different way. While winning numerous awards, he has served as a juror and teaches perspective. He is on the Colorado Watercolor Society Board and recently won “Best of Show” in the 2020 CWS Member’s Show.
Jeremy and Barbara moved to Colorado in 2019 to be closer to their daughter’s family and to enjoy the land of Jeremy’s cowboy ancestors.
