Jake Jones was born in Cambridge in 1972. He spent his childhood in rural Cambridgeshire where he developed his love for creativity and open spaces.
A self-taught artist, Jake left behind a career in carpentry and joinery in 2015 and relocated to North Yorkshire to pursue his passion for art. Jake is inspired by the landscape of coast, moors and dales and enjoys exploring with his family and dog.
Jake’s fresh and lively use of watercolour lends itself very well to painting the wild beauty of North Yorkshire and its wildlife. His intention is to communicate a sense of peace and tranquillity.
Jake was new to Whitby Galleries in 2017.
