Eva Maria Jones

"The evolution of my paths is symbolic of my work transitioning from realism to that of abstraction. My inspirations have been Van Gogh's "Starry Night", Calder’s mobiles and Kandinsky's abstractions. For me, "Art is not what you see but what you make others see." Edgar Degas

Path In Motion - Color pencil, ink drawing, original 20 x 30 in.

Eva Jones’ creative journey began after winning an art scholarship to Northern Arizona University in 1976. She majored in Commercial Art and minored in Fine Arts. Shortly thereafter she began a family and left school. She then became a freelance artist taking on commissions and partnering with a printing company, providing them with illustrations and clip art. Eva eventually returned to school in 1992, and graduated with a nursing degree in 1997. In 2018, Eva officially retired as a RN to pursue fine arts as a career.

“Zentangle’s” intricate repetitive designs coaxed her into revisiting her artistic roots and has greatly inspired her love of using intricate details in her work. Since emerging as an artist, she has participated in numerous exhibits and has received recognition at almost every endeavor she pursued.

List of exhibits are as follows: Envision Art’s “Fervor” exhibit 1/2019, Frisco TX and was featured on their online magazine; Envision Art’s “Conduit” 8/2019, Frisco TX, winning honorable mention; Gallery 25N online exhibit “Abstract 2019”; Space Light Time’s online “Landscapes”2019, special merit; Space Light Time online “555” 2019, special recognition for 2 entries; Carrollwood Cultural Center’s “Women Who Take Joyful Ownership” 2019, 2nd place, “Waterworks” 2019, honorable mention, “Emerging Artist” 2019, honorable mention.

Even though Eva has had a late start in her career, her passion is to exceed all expectation and to be prolifically good.

“It starts with an idea, a glimpse of reality, or an emotion from a photograph. It materializes and takes shape. It is full of color, feeling, intensity, and wantonness. It has the ability to raise the spirit. It has a message. It is personal. It is a creation. It is the work of an artist. It is art.”

Under the Sea - Acrylic on canvas 20 x 16 in.

"I grew up and currently live in Southern California.  It is home to me, my husband and my two children. While attending Fullerton College in the early 1990's, I took Art History, Painting and Drawing classes. Art was my niche and my happy place. It was at that time I knew I had a passion for acrylic brush painting. After college I did paint for a time, then my busy life took precedence. I had to put my artwork on hold for a while. Marriage (to my high school sweetheart), two children, etc. took priority. Now, my kids are older and I'm back to doing what I love... painting. 

My paintings focus on bold colors and clean lines. Some of my paintings focus on a simple subject and others tell more of a story. Many of my pieces are nature and travel inspired. Other works are more contemporary themed. Acrylic paints are usually my medium of choice. Much of my work on canvas is created with a constant blend of bright acrylic color.

I'm pleased to say that I have been in several live galleries and online juried exhibitions.  Some of my pieces have been awarded. I have had works published in artists magazines. My paintings have been sold to private collectors, some who have commissioned me to paint additional pieces for them. There is no better compliment.

I believe each piece of artwork should be a challenge for me to create.  It is a necessity to have to think through every brush stroke, color blend, composition and subject matter. Taking a painting from an empty white canvas to something unique and captivating is the best feeling on earth! Art is a great communicator...everyone sees it differently. This is the inspiration that keeps me painting until my fingers ache."

"I already had my own style as a child. As a nine-year-old I started an art education, which I completed at the age of sixteen. I studied the image-building of the Old Masters and developed my technique, form and content. Overlay, time, reinterpretation and refractions of the apparent shape my work."
