Penelope Jones ’84
I grew up in the Finger Lakes Region of New York and first came to Maine to attend Portland School of Art (Meca). Eventually, after leaving to go to grad school, I made Portland my home, where I’ve maintained a studio and taught visual arts courses at many area colleges – most recently and for over 20 years at Bates College. My studio practice entails drawing, painting and collage. Recent work is informed by color, architecture and natural phenomenon of light and atmospheric conditions.
