George Hill Jones was born in 1956 in Dallas, Texas. He 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. Jones, a native of Texas and longtime Dallas resident, is one of a limited number of established artists whose body of work captivates the attention of private and public collectors across the country. He generally takes a simple subject and goes from there. He likes to use contrasting colors which also add depth and make the pieces more interesting and appealing. Working in large format, Jones’ paintings invoke eccentricity through the use of impressionist shapes and color.
Bold, vibrant and whimsical are a few words that describe Jones’ wet on wet works. You see it in the layer upon layer of generous paint applied in colors and hues that create mystery and leave much to the imagination of the viewer. Hues, such as dark russet and midnight blue, contribute to an ambiance that is decidedly mysterious.
George’s work has been enjoyed and collected by many including Vice President Dan Quayle and five of his then advisors, professional athletes, business owners and executives and their families.
