Sue Jones Artist Biography | British sculptor
Sue Jones was born in 1964 and grew up in Shropshire. She moved to Oxfordshire at 16 and fell in love with the County. Jones first took up sculpting with the Bicester Sculpture Group in 2009. The artist has a small workshop located at her home, but chooses to work in a group and shared space at the George Muller Studio, finding this environment creative, stimulating and much more enjoyable.
Joens is a member of the Oxford Sculptors Group, where she works with a number of materials to depict ideas resulting in stunning pieces made of Bronze, Bronze Resin and Slate on polished oak or stone bases. Jones' understanding of movement, shape and space are exemplified in every sculpture the artist completes.
Sue Jones Artist Statement
I had always been drawn to sculpture and would have to touch the pieces to connect and experience the texture and shapes. When I sculpt I draw my inspiration from all the natural shapes that I see on my walks that nature has designed already. From the patterns on the beach that are left by the sea, plant seed heads, ripples of water, texture of tree bark, shapes of leaves, it all feeds into my creative emotions.
I love my work to be touched and enjoy watching people read the shapes and textures by handling them, as I did when creating them. Each piece is a very personal expression.
