About Ivan Jones

 
 
  • Biography

    I am a retired veterinary surgeon who has become a pastel artist. I was introduced to pastels as a teenager by a friend of my father’s and in fact I still have remnants of my first set of pastels. I have completed a large number of works in the past 15 years, many of which can be seen on my website. I feel that pastels have a great vibrancy and richness of colour that is often under appreciated. I work largely from photographs and undertake commission work as well as create artwork in a wide range of subject matter. Detail is of importance to me and each work takes 25 to 30 hours to complete. I admire the work of many artists including the Impressionists, Pre-Raphaelites, David Shepherd, Simon Coombes and many of my contemporaries. I have exhibited widely in Herefordshire and currently have original work, as well as Artist Proof limited edition prints, exhibited at the Sable and Hogg Gallery in Brecon.
