Biography
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Originating in New Zealand, Claude Jones studied and established her art career in Australia, with  gallery representation at Artereal Gallery in Sydney and Edwina Corlette Gallery in Brisbane. In 2015, Claude moved to Germany where she currently lives and works with her Texan husband and their Australian cat. Her artwork focuses on the creation of mixed-media sculptures and 2D works that question our complex and often contradictory relationship with other animals, with nature and indeed,  with ourselves.

The artist has traveled extensively, studying, teaching, and exhibiting widely, with numerous solo exhibitions up her sleeve. She has undertaken 8 international artist residency programs and has received several grants and awards. Her works are represented in many public and private collections including Artbank, The Art Gallery of New South Wales and The Rhode Island School of Design Museum in the U.S.A.

Claude is a plant-eating pacifist who strongly believes in the need to emancipate all innocent beings. Her art is a form of quiet activism.
