Joel Carson Jones
Joel Carson Jones lives, teaches, and paints in Northeastern Pennsylvania, where he was born in 1975. With the work ethic of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area, he embodies a humble appreciation of simplicity, nature, and the friendships his discipline has fostered. Jones has established an international reputation for his still life and trompe l’oeil paintings. In 2008, Jones was granted the title of Living Master by the Art Renewal Center.
Jones completed his graduate work at Marywood University (Scranton, PA) and also studied abroad in Angers, France. He felt, however, the need to pursue his love of realism, still-life, and trompe l’oeil. His vision and ability to render with impeccable clarity has put him at the center of today’s growing realist movement, and his work is sought worldwide. Jones’ paintings continue to appear in many national publications, including American Art Collector, The Artist's Magazine, and International Artist.
Jones is represented by Cavalier Galleries (New York City and Greenwich, CT).
