Much of Graham Jones’ life has been consumed with some sort of artistic venture covering the genres of music, writing and design, where he forged successful careers in all three areas. He is well-known throughout Australia for his award-winning home design company GRAHAM JONES DESIGN. After selling his company in 2006 he became design consultant to the Royal Family in Abu Dhabi, where he worked for seven years.
In 2015, Graham began painting as his full time career, a break of 50 years since he had won the school art prize. Successful solo and joint exhibitions at established galleries around Melbourne followed. Primarily landscape based, Graham’s paintings walk the line between realism and abstraction.
Graham now works out of Southern Buoy Studios in Mornington, where his studio also acts as a mini-gallery, complemented by a large gallery space which exhibits works by studio artists and other artists from across Australia.
After an overwhelming response from 1500 artists from 25 different countries, Graham recently undertook an Artist in Residence program at the stunning Chateau d’Orquevaux in Champagne-Ardenne, France.
His painting Bay of Fires was recently selected by the President of the International Women’s Forum for the design of a silk scarf by Australian fashion design Lisa Barron, to be the centrepiece of the 2018 IWF World Conference held in Melbourne.
