ABOUT THE ARTIST
Christie Jones tells stories in watercolor. Whether an old barn, a beloved family pet, fishermen on a pier, an emerging hibiscus, or children making memories with their grandparents, Christie believes there is a personal story to be captured through color, motion and character.
Her goal is to find the narrative in each piece, and to cause that story to resonate with the viewer and enable them to find their own special moment in the painting.
Christie has painted throughout Virginia and the Outer Banks and has both commission and online buyers from Boston to Florida. And if one looks very closely, they will find a surprise bit of whimsy in each painting. As part of her signature, Christie hides a paintbrush in each piece, something her children told her to do long ago! Her watercolors are painted on Fabriano 140 lb. cold press paper or Yupo. Her charcoal work is also done on Fabriano 140 lb. cold press. Her mat board is acid free and Christie’s frames are custom made of wood, with a subtle burnished silver matte finish.
