Sheree Jones is an artist and oil painter living in North Vancouver. She has been passionate about her art since the age of crayons. An active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists & Plein Air BC, her work can be found in numerous collections around the globe. Sheree leads workshops in her personal teaching studio and on plein air adventures throughout BC and internationally. She also teaches a number of popular courses for the District of West Vancouver.

“My creative journey has taken me down many paths. I am a keen outdoor plein air painter, preferring to capture my subjects directly from life. I carry my painting gear wherever I travel, from Costa Rica to Spain, Sicily and Italy. From California to Wyoming and many of my favourite BC Gulf Islands. Painting from life be it the landscape, a still life set up in the studio or the human figure is an essential part of my art practice. I find painting plein air to be the most rewarding.” - Sheree Jones
