Roger Jones

 

I was born in Surrey, 50kms South of London, spent my teenage years in education.  I travelled overland through Asia, Africa & the Americas after working for 7 years.  In 1980 I emigrated to Australia and retired in 2009 moving to the Northern Rivers from Brisbane.

At college I created student union signage and a little art but on retiring I always wanted  to draw and paint.  I paint using water colours, acrylics and oils.  My technical construction draftsmanship helps with drawing building and perspective.  I love trees and plants being the son of a gardener.  The tutors, member’s encouragement and club environment are excellent for developing skills for all painting mediums.
