About the Artist: NEIL JONES
The inspiration for his paintings stems from his childhood years on a farm, which verged on the Qu'Appelle Valley near Edgeley, Saskatchewan. This rich habitat held many superb species of wildlife, which stimulated his love for conservation and his inherent artistic abilities. Since then he has travelled from the Yukon to Wyoming, exploring the wilds along the way and studying flora and fauna in its natural state.
A self-taught artist, Neil paints in oils, sometimes working in the open air to catch the essence of the world he loves. The splendor of his work portrays aspects of the natural world in a positive and effective way that reveals a deep understanding of the environment. He hopes his paintings will take viewers beyond the environmental issues and the saving of it, to a more conscious awareness of our ecosystems.
Among other prestigious awards, Neil has twice won Wildlife Artist of the Year in Saskatchewan. His work has also been indirectly involved in conservation work, being part of the Ramsar World Wildlife Fund Banquet and Show in Regina and the Canadian Nature Federation Saskatchewan Tour. His painting ¿Red Fox with Goose Wing¿ was selected by Ducks Unlimited as part of the Royal Dinner and Auction held in the presence of the Duke of Edinburgh, President of the World Wildlife Fund.
Galleries currently representing Neil include the "West Lives On Gallery" in Jackson, Wyoming and the Ripplinger Art Gallery," (Henry's Café) in Regina, Saskatchewan. Neil's paintings have also appeared in many solo and group shows and they are held in both public and private collections throughout North America. He also teaches, lectures, adjudicates and mentors aspiring artists.
