Rie Jones grew up in Chapel Hill, NC where she spent much of her childhood exploring the woods behind her family home and in the mountains of North Carolina during summer vacations. When not in the woods or mountains, she could be found fostering her love of horses.
She began her career as a commercial equine photographer after studying photography at Rochester Institute of Technology. Her work was published in multiple national and international trade publications.
While at RIT she was captivated by the work of Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, Franz Marc and Elaine de Kooning, among others.
She is now working in digital photography. In her medium and large scale photographs she employs natural colors and elements in an impressionistic and expressionistic manner.
Rie is inspirited by our shared connection to the one source found in all things. Her work reflects this inspiration.
Currently, she lives with her husband on their horse farm near the Shenandoah mountains in Culpeper, VA.
