About Gordon “Gord” Jones

Gordon Jones

Biography of Guest Artist

Gord Jones was born in Hamilton Ontario and has been drawing and painting for over 35 years. After trying several different mediums such as pastels, oils, acrylics, even egg tempera, he kept coming back to his favourite, watercolour.

Gord has studied under many of Canada’s most-loved watercolour artists through the Dundas Valley School of Art and The Haliburton School of the Arts.

Gord is an elected member of the prestigious Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour (CSPWC), the Haliburton Arts Council, and has exhibited his work at the McMaster Innovation Park and the Made in Haliburton Gallery. He has several works in corporate and private collections.

Gord’s source of inspiration is landscapes, cityscapes and industrial scenes which he paints “en plein air” or in the studio from photographs he has taken. His approach is to interpret the essence of his subjects, rather than produce a meticulously detailed likeness.
