Val Jones works from her studio at home near Dartington in Devon.  After years of experience teaching from secondary level up to post graduate students of art & design Val now works as a full-time artist. Her work encompasses three main different media: oil paintings, printmaking and acrylics.

Following extensive travels and stays in the Middle East, Far East and North Africa Val worked as a design and layout artist in a publishing and print firm in London. She returned to teaching in the Midlands where she remained for the next 20 years graduating with an MA from Birmingham School of Art and becoming Senior Lecturer there.

After a move to Devon Val’s work has been informed by wonderful views of big skies over Dartmoor from her house.

“‘Above Hope Cove’ was painted in-situ while staying in a cottage overlooking Outer Hope on the coast of the South Hams.   The tree was silhouetted against a dramatic  sky …I just had to paint its sculptural form and lacy branches.  The soaring birds broke the stillness of the painting.  And there’s a hint of the pools lying below.” Val Jones
