Stewart has an Associate diploma in Drawing and Painting from the Ontario College of Art as well as from Sheridan College’s Classical Animation program. Using unashamed brush strokes and vivid complementary colours, Jones follows in the tradition of landscape painting Canadian art is so painfully famous for. Vivid oranges, reminiscent of Tom Thomson, show up as flashes in skies, streets, buildings, crossing cable lines. Unlike the Group of Seven, who escaped Toronto to paint the wilds of the north, Jones paints the beauty he absorbs from his downtown neighbourhood.
He currently lives and paints in Toronto.
