Promoting and Supporting Watermedia Since 1939

Nanette Jones


Although I consider myself to be a self-taught artist, I have studied   extensively on my own and in workshops with master artists.

 The idea of painting in a nonobjective manner was first introduced to me at a workshop, and I knew without hesitation that nonobjective art was the approach
I wanted to pursue in my creative undertakings.

 I enjoy experimenting with new materials and new techniques. The forgiving nature of most water media pigments and elements allows me to create artwork (which I sometimes enhance with collage elements) that I feel springs from my own creative inner spirit. I generally work on several paintings at one time, thereby allowing me to keep my creative energy going and to keep a fresh eye on the paintings as they approach the final brushstrokes.

 I allow the wet pigments to develop on the paper before I analyze the pathway into which I am being led. Allowing the water media to work for me gives me freedom to express my innermost feelings in the finished artwork. I give myself permission to add to or subtract from any element in the work by experimentation. Painting spontaneously and intuitively has allowed my artistic journey to be one in which my passion for painting from the heart has evolved.
