David Jones is a young painter and portrait artist who has taught a number of classes recently at the art school.
He will be having an exhibition in the tea room at Inverlochy from Friday the 23rd of September to Friday the 7th of October.
David's work combines a wide range of influences from both classical and modernist schools of painting, commercial illustration and graphic design.
"I first met David in 2008 when he had a solo show at Thistle Hall and I bought one of his paintings. Since then I have secured David a number of private commissions and he has worked with me as both a teacher and more recently as mural painter (see previous NEWS post) I think he is quite simply the best painter I know - and I meet them all the time!"

D. O. Jones - Born in 1986 in Upper Hutt, New Zealand. Over the years, a long term fascination with mastering classical drawing had lead to frustration with available art education. Eventually he took an early exit from design school to pursue self-directed study in draughtsmanship, oil painting and art history. After a solo show in 2008 much of his time has been spent creating works for private sale, working on portrait commissions and teaching."
