  • My Real Name Allen Lee Jones
  • Location: Amery Wi.
  • Age: 67
  • Occupation: Artist Oil Painter
  • Interests: Painting, Nature, Hiking, Camping, Visiting Galleries and Museums, and Playing Poker "Texas Holdem"
  • About Me: Biography
    I was born in Alton, Illinois a Mississippi river town. Aug 22 1951 This is where I started to developed my talent and passion for painting. I got my start by painting on billboard signs, canvas, and t-shirts.

    I relocated to Minneapolis, MN. in 1976.
    The City of St. Paul used one of my paintings for their Christmas card in 1978. That same year I also had a painting featured on the cover of The Minnesota Tour Guide
    One of my paintings was used for the cover of the Amazon River Boys album, and the Vice President of the Mn. Arts Board has three of my paintings in his private collection!
    I am mostly self taught but I did attend two years of college at School of Associated Arts in St. Paul before funds, loans, and grants ran out.

    I currently have a painting in the 'I Have The Right Exhibition" at the University of California presented and mounted by the 'I Have the Right' Exhibit at PICTURE Cultural Art...Here is that link..... http://www.pictureartfoundation.org/
    I have had several one man exhibitions.

    In August 2012 my work was be featured in International Contemporary Masters Volume Six. Here is that link....http://wwab.us/

    I have been invited to exhibit all over the world from Venice to the annual Basel Art Fair in Miami but funding has always been an issue. Was recently nominated for an award “1 st Trinacria Award 2014” by The editorial staff of EFFETTO ARTE which is an Italian Art Magazine here is link to their site http://www.rivistaeffettoarte.com/

    My painting journey is an ever evolving process a good artist never stops experimenting and searching and never rules out a process or technique its just added to your arsenal and you draw on those as you create.

    My art is not about copying the beauty I see. Its about creating my own!

Art Philosophy
A little bit about my work "Beyond Abstract"
Some of my paintings have a specific orientation and others can be hung from any angle as well.
some are an attempt to convey a feeling, or experience that I have lived through.
I work from every angle on a painting like a mystery unfolding in front of me where positive and negative forces are competing for significance, and a balance of line, light, shadow, and color is constantly evolving into something else and hopefully becomes engaging!
As I paint I look for that DELICATE BALANCE BETWEEN JUST ENOUGH INFORMATION AND TOO MUCH one brush stroke too little or one too much can be the difference between compelling artwork and something simply decorative, artwork where a persons own imagination becomes an integral part and the observer has a different experience every time they view it.
