Christie Jones is a fine artist based on Long Island, New York. Mostly self-taught, Jones works under the business name Swell Anchor Studio. Inspired by coasts & conservation, her work touches on mental health & climate change advocacy. Using natural materials and typically working within the circular form she creates meditative work primarily in watercolor. Her popular abstract series, titled Impressions features abstract marks made with her handmade watercolor paints captured during the paint-making process. In 2021 she created a shell recycling program, picking up discarded shells from local restaurants that would normally dispose of them where they’d wind up in a landfill. Sanitizing them, she repurposes these shells into vessels to hold her handmade watercolor paints. Repurposing waste into packaging, and using natural & local materials to create these paints, she offers them in limited batches inspiring others in their creativity.
This exhibition will be up for view and sale for the months of August and September at Brewport Coffee House in the heart of Bellport Village.
