Morgan Jones creates photography based artwork affixed to birch board with resin and/or varnish added as well as paint, charcoal, pencil, metallic leaf, washi tape and other antiquing mediums.
Morgan is a mixed-media artist, living and working in Toronto, Ontario. In August of 2013, Jones decided to pursue his lifelong passion and left his position of twelve years with a large multi-national consumer electronics manufacturer to launch a full-time career as a professional artist. This former Director of Sales is self-taught.
Inspired by the casual observation of the people and life around him, his work is constantly evolving, guided by his tendency toward patience, observation, perseverance and, quite simply – effort. His philosophy embraces ‘trial and error’ which he believes are wonderful teachers.
Continually looking to incorporate new ideas and mediums, Jones follows a multi-step process when creating his mixed-media art. With a keen eye for texture, design and composition, coupled with a whimsical flare, Jones creates works that are aesthetically engaging while also evoking a visceral response in the viewer.
