William H Jones was born in Lancashire and studied Graphic Design at Bolton College of Art & Design, graduating in 1973. Since then he has sold works in a variety of media from watercolours to pastels before settling on his preferred medium of oils. As a professional artist he has been based in Cumbria for the past 28 years . The beautiful scenery that surrounds him acts as inspiration for his work. With an established reputation in landscape and portraiture painting William and his wife Bernadette ran the successful Finestra Gallery in Kirkby Lonsdale for 14 years and have now opened William’s home studio as a gallery at Dairy Cottage displaying solely his own work.
