CERI JONES

Freelance Oil Painting Artist

About

Hi! I'm Ceri, a young artist currently living in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, but I was brought up in the South Yorkshire town of Doncaster. It feels like I've always been drawing and painting, so it was natural for me to study art at A level and practice the techniques of painters like Jenny Saville and Lucien Freud, whose work I really admire.


After school, I then went on to study at Staffordshire University, to achieve a BSc degree in Games Concepts Design, which included drawing up artwork for video game characters and creatures, environments, and 3D modelling.


Once uni was over, I made myself completely miserable doing your everyday 9-5 jobs for a few years, until I realised I had to do what I enjoy, and what I do best, and that is paint. I live in a small flat with my fiance, a couple of cats and a pair of guinea pigs, and to earn a living painting all day (apart from when I'm fishing) is my goal.


So, you have to start somewhere, and this is it!
