Timothy Emlyn Jones says, “for me the attraction of printmaking is the way it enables marks and images I couldn’t get any other way, and as such it is an extension of drawing, which is my greatest passion.”  Timothy was educated at Hornsey College of Art, where he was one of the organisers of the 1968 Sit In, and at the Royal College of Art where he was the first student on their practice-based research degree, the MArt(RCA). Subsequently, he was a member of Joseph Beuys’s Free International University, and later he took the MEd at Cardiff Metropolitan University. He exhibits internationally and is represented in public collections in several countries including The UK Government Collection, The Royal Collection, and the Irish State Art Collection (OPW). He has been awarded professorships at Burren College of Art/NUI Galway, Glasgow School of Art, Wimbledon College of Art, Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts, and he was elected to the European Cultural Parliament in 2011. He lives in the Burren, Ireland.
