“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
