Graphy | Having fun with watercolours by Amelina Jones
Sign in
Hi! I am a freelance watercolour illustrator and writer, sitting on a mountain somewhere on earth.I am known here as Amelina Jones. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, in fact, my first art material was a pot of jam, so I am told. I work on detailed and colourful paintings, ones which I often use to illustrate my rambling imagination and to provide glimpses into my whimsical worlds. I love seeing the worlds and characters in my head come to life on paper and giving them a story to live in. I spend a lot of time painting in my little home garden that consists of two sassy geraniums, a wild rose whose gossip is totally unreliable and a softly spoken Jasmin plant. Plants are really important to me and my artwork, I love incorporating them into my illustrations when I can and painting them in all their beauty.
