Biography

Andrew McNeile Jones graduated from Oxford University’s Ruskin School of Art, with a first in Fine Art, in the 1980’s. He then trained as a filmmaker, working in all areas of the film and television business. He produced and directed dramas, documentaries and commercials. He shot in many countries around the world, and won numerous awards for his productions.

In 2002 decided to leave the film business in order to be able to concentrate on his art.

Since then, he has lived in Oxfordshire with his wife and young family. He has exhibited regularly since 2003, and his work is in numerous private collections around the UK, and various points from San Francisco to St. Petersburg

In 2007, he won first prize in a Fine Art Trade Guild competition.
He has been a prizewinner with various publications including International Artist, Artist & Illustrator and State magazine.

He has been commissioned to produce some paintings and drawings for Harrods department store, which now feature on some of their products.

His work is to be seen regularly at the major art fairs in London and across Europe.


He has exhibited in galleries from London, to Northumberland and Glasgow.

He has also exhibited with The Art Gallery in Tetbury for some years.

And since 2011, he has exhibited with the French gallery, Anagama, based in Versailles.


He has been profiled in a number of publications, including Art Of England, Homes and Gardens, Art Business Today, as well as being interviewed on BBC Oxford.

In 2017, he started developing a new body of work alongside his distinctive closely-observed interiors.
The new work is more gestural, semi-figurative in nature, using found imagery as a source for more emotional, thought provoking paintings.
