Artist Information

George H. Jones

George Hill Jones was born in 1956 in Dal­las, Texas. George has been draw­ing and paint­ing basi­cal­ly his whole life since going to the principal’s office in the first grade for draw­ing the Beatles.

George applies a large amount of paint on most of his work and is a com­bi­na­tion brush and palette knife painter. His art takes on a 3‑D look with the use of large chunks of fresh paint. His col­or pal­let has con­sist­ed of bright, con­trast­ing col­ors and his paint­ings are pos­i­tive and are meant for peo­ple to view and feel good about the world around them.

George wants to inspire peo­ple and give them a very opti­mistic and upbeat mood after view­ing his work. “I want my work to reach out to peo­ple and just make them hap­py,” he says. “There is way too much sad­ness in the world. I believe most peo­ple are look­ing for things that will bring them up to a bet­ter place or mood or per­haps help them escape from their dai­ly lives.”

George H. Jones began his career as an artist at a very ear­ly age, cre­at­ing graphite ren­der­ings and paint­ing in water­col­ors but soon pro­gressed to oils, a medi­um he has adopt­ed for the last 25 years. A life­time res­i­dent of Texas, George is one of a lim­it­ed num­ber of estab­lished artists whose body of work cap­ti­vates the atten­tion of pri­vate and pub­lic col­lec­tors across the coun­try. Work­ing in large for­mat, Jones’ paint­ings invoke eccen­tric­i­ty through the use of impres­sion­ist shapes and color.
