Statement

Artist Statement:

With its vast mystery and dynamic beauty, nature provides a special, intuitive way for me to connect with God. This connection resonates with the deepest part of me and calls out my creativity. Feeling powerfully linked to life itself, I see a vision of what I will paint, where the lights and darks will be and how the lines will move. When I am ready to paint, the first thing I do is brush water onto some of the paper. This way, while I lay down my india ink and watercolor, the water can spontaneously move everything around, spreading the ink here, bleeding or holding the color there. The painting process doesn’t take long: in thirty minutes to an hour, it is finished. 

 

Biography:

Born in 1986 in the quaint country town of Opelika, Sarah Amanda Jones grew up two hours northwest in Birmingham, Alabama, the state of blackberries and peaches. She returned to the Opelika area for her undergraduate education at Auburn University, where she earned her BA in Art in 2007 with Magna Cum Laude honors. Over the past four years, Sarah has shown her paintings in several exhibitions in Alabama and The Golden State of California. She now lives on the coast of Los Angeles with her partner Michael and their fish, snails, and bamboo.
