As if growing up and studying in a culturally rich city like St. Louis was not enough, artist Ann Tygett Jones has also spent time in New Zealand and Northern California before returning to The Gateway City. Art classes during summers as a child were where she first explored her creativity which quickly transformed into a passion. Her work, characterised by bright, vivid colours, textures and movement is a visual treat, with swathes of emotion layered in between. Fuelled by experiences in life she translates everyday events into her abstract work. You can find out more about her work via the links below.
