    Update for VE Day 

    My view of the war leading up to VE Day as a very young child in London.

    When the Talking Stopped

    In the faint hum of the afternoon 

    Laden bees buzz, buzzing

    Among the musky bloom.

    Teddy urged to drink his share

    His mouth firmly unyielding

    Amid the milk stained hair

    And I remember laughing 

    When as she shelled the peas

    The maggot popped up - smiling.

    But then - the warning siren.


    The sky looked sad, downcast

    The sun had closed its eyes.

    Jagged stairs still clung to the wall

    - Embedded deep

    Like the nails in my clenched palms,

    For now there was only rubble

    And broken - broken stems

    Where those fingers had gently tended

    The few flowers in the yard.


    With inner sense dismantled,

    I mouthed it would be alright,

    But teddy just stared glass-eyed

    - Reflecting  my own doubt.


    I've always had a fascination with colour and form, I think from when I was given my first handmade kaleidoscope to play with at the age of two, after an air raid destroyed our house in the war. I have never forgotten the pleasure it gave. I love creating art for others to enjoy. 

    I DO SHIP INTERNATIONALLY, BUT PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR ACCURATE PRICES AS POSTAL COSTS CAN VARY SO MUCH TO DIFFERENT AREAS.

    In this age of mass production what could be better than buying a carefully handmade item that can never be exactly replicated, either for yourself or as a thoughtful, unique gift for a relative or friend,

    Jean Tatton Jones has sold her work internationally and her work is found in many private collections. She has also attracted corporate buyers: including medical and dental centres, restaurants and offices. In addition, Jean has won awards for poetry, which has been published in North America, Europe, India and Britain.

    She uses a variety of media including watercolour, acrylic and oil, her themes include landscapes, sea views, creatures, flowers and abstract design. Jean explains that some of her recent work has a dream-like quality and is born from “our rich cultural heritage of myths, legends and poetry which evokes feelings of mystery and enchantment.”

    Her paintings come initialled on the front, signed and dated on the back and with a Certificate of Authenticity. They are on a frame with painted gallery edges.
