The Cornish artist and author Robert Jones was born in Newquay, Cornwall. The beaches and cliffs were his childhood playground. Robert studied at Falmouth College of Art where he was taught by Robert Organ and Francis Hewlett. He continued to paint whilst teaching in various schools including A.S. Neill’s Summerhill School for three years, and for seven further years fishing around the Cornish coast.
A period as part time tutor at Penzance and Falmouth Colleges of art, followed by a successful exhibition at Newlyn Orion Art Gallery encouraged him to concentrate on his painting.
Robert is the author of the books Reuben Chappell, 'Pierhead Painter' and Alfred Wallis, 'Artist and Mariner'.
