Jones is a Denver native and continues to live near there at the foot of her beloved Rocky Mountains, where the light that she loves is bright and clear, and the seasons, which influence her work, are definite in their character and moods. Studying biology in college taught her the amazing power of living systems, and gardening has shown her what a struggle that can be, and both of those infuse her with awe at the beauty and tenacity of plants.

Her artistic aesthetic has been shaped by studies in Art History, where she has been influenced by Michelangelo's clarity of composition and communication, and the great illusions of light painted by Johannes Vermeer, and the detailed realism of William Michael Harnett.

The flowers in her paintings all come from her gardens, or a local orchid grower, and are infused with the crystalline light of her home in Colorado. "Every year I get to participate in the amazing transformation of a plant that survived the winter, into a determined plant reaching for the sun and giving all of its life force to create glorious and spectacular flowers." Each painting is composed to highlight the most beautiful qualities of each flower. In its way, each painting is a celebration of that piece of nature.

Her work has been featured in museum and gallery shows, including the Naples Art Museum, The R. W. Norton Art Gallery, in Shreveport, LA, Salmagundi Art Club, the National Arts Club in NY, and the Colorado History Museum.

Artwork and feature articles about her work have appeared in American Art Collector, Southwest Art, and Fine Art Connoisseur.

She is the author of Classic Still Life Painting, published by Watson-Guptill.
