Hello, welcome to my website. My
name is Vanessa Beverley Jones, I am an animal portrait artist
based in Cornwall, where I live with my husband, five horses,
a dog and a cat!
Before delving into the art world I
followed a more academic path, graduating with a first class
honours degree in Accounting and Finance from the University
of Wales, Aberystwyth in 2004 and subsequently taking up a
position as a Financial Analyst. In a fit of madness (or
clarity?!) I decided to move away from that route in 2006 and
embark on what I believe to be a greater challenge - to not be
a starving artist!
So here I am. Animals have always formed a large part of
my life and have played a major role in defining who I am and
despite my original campaign, art has always been where my
With each piece of artwork I undertake, my
aim is to capture the individuality of the subject in
question, their character, charm and soul. Hopefully you
will see this within the gallery pages!
Thank you for visiting :)
