Amanda Jones

Amanda was born in Southend-on-sea, Essex, England, and moved to Alberta in 1968. She now lives in Richmond, British Columbia, and has called the West Coast her home for the past 25 years. Amanda is very much inspired by the rugged beauty of the Pacific Rim.

Amanda developed an early interest in art and experimented with oils. But it was not until she discovered the watercolour medium in 1991, that she became serious about her artwork. After studying with several respected Canadian artists, she attained AFCA status with the Federation of Canadian Artists. In 2010 Amanda was awarded senior signature status (SFCA) in the Federation.

Painting primarily in acrylics and watercolours, Amanda has a realistic yet impressionistic style and tries to evoke a sense of peace and tranquility in her paintings. A landscape painter with a love of the West Coast, she comments that “my art has given me an awareness of the world around me. I find myself noticing the beautiful rhythms, patterns and contrasts in my surroundings, and I hope to convey this in my paintings.”

She has consistently been one of the top selling artists with the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery since 1997.
