Katy Jones

Katy Jones, Local manchester Artist
The Artist

Katy Jones was born in Bristol in 1977. She
has had no formal art training since A-Level, and first came
to Manchester to study English Language and Literature.

She now lives in Rusholme, where she works
as an artist and writer.

Much of her artistic inspiration is drawn
from literary sources, such as Shakespeare, the Bible and various
legends and mythologies.

Other influences include gothic architecture
and celtic design, as well as the work of Brian Froud, Alan
Lee, John Howe, Evelyn de Morgan, Cicely M. Barker and Alfons

She usually works in acrylics or mixed media,
but is beginning to experiment with digital art software and

About her work, Katy says:

“I often describe myself as
a fantasy artist, which isn’t meant to suggest that my work
is escapist.

I usually paint imaginary creatures,
but I want to encourage a thoughtful engagement with reality.

The images are meant to make people
think, sometimes about the symbolism of different elements,
sometimes to present an old story in a new light, or perhaps
to challenge the way they see women, or to prompt them to
wonder about God.”
