Marian Jones is an abstract painter and photographer who has been working in the visual
arts since 2019 (photography) March 2020 lockdown (painting), she is based in Oceanside,
California. A Texas native who has a Bachelors's Degree in Theatre Arts and a Master's in
Human Behavior has acted and produced theatre for over 20 years. Jones’ switch from
performing arts to visual arts was a very natural process that easily moved from one to the other.
Jones' abstract acrylic paintings and her designs are inspired by her work developing trust in her
inner self over the years. Finding the ability to honestly express without obstacles and in so
doing she opens her paintings up for others to find in her work their own truths. Indeed those
who have commented on her work have each seen something very different from others.
Trusting her hands to move and capture a design is simply a matter of trusting herself. Jones is also inspired by music everything from jazz to classical to hip hop and everything in between.
Jones’ abstract photography is an art form that allows her to use her strong sense of observation.
Her sand photographs are untouched, they are exactly as they were seen. Nature at its finest.
Jones’ started showing her photographs immediately at on-line galleries; Light Space Time and
Praxis Photo Center.
Jones’ abstract paintings have been shown at the Jones Gallery in Kansas City, MO.
