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.

“‘Flurry of Birds’ was painted well into lockdown and as a result of many walks on Dartmoor.   The undergrowth is wild and agitated but with new life vibrant emerging.  There are hints of hopefulness in the sky and pools and birds rise out of the tangled landscape.” Val Jones
