Gillian Jones was born in Banffshire in 1966 and was brought up on the Isle of Skye. She studied at Grays
School of Art, Aberdeen and now lives and works in the North of Scotland.
Donnie Munro, musician and artist, is a great admirer of Gillian's work and writes:
‘Gillian’s works are poetic, dynamic and deeply engaging. They bring to the viewer a real sense of the
pleasure with which the artist has engaged with the landscapes of her native Highlands and Islands.
The Scottish Gaidhealtachd is emerging as an area which has a strong, tangible and distinct visual
culture of which Gillian Jones is both inheritor and exciting exponent.’
She has received numerous awards and commissions including the Elizabeth Greenshields Award for Young Artists
(1989) and a SAC/ Hi Arts Visual Artists Award (2001).
Her work is featured in numerous private and public collections world-wide including that of The Highland
Regional Council, The Piper Bravo Platform and The Great Western Hospital, Edinburgh.
