David Owain Jones was born in Upper Hutt in 1986. Initially a self-taught painter, David has devoted much of his life to studying the tradition of representational painting. More recently David has completed a Bachelor of Design and Visual Arts to further progress these studies.
David is passionate about art education and has a firm belief that anyone, regardless of talent, can master the fundamental means of expressing one’s self through art. He offers a systematic and logical approach, combining practical demonstrations with direct explanations that build upon one another in a clear sequence. He hopes that by providing students with a robust and time-tested skill set, they will be able to confidently communicate their own taste and creativity through their work.
