NANCY REED JONES
Nancy Reed Jones is an award winning artist living and working in the beautiful Hudson Valley. Nancy was trained at the Huntington Art League on Long Island where she lived most of her life.
Nancy owned her own mural business for many years on Long Island and painted murals for the cancer patients in the hospitals there. Her murals were painted directly on the walls in the patient’s rooms where they could be viewed from their beds. These murals were used for “Guided Imagery” which is a technique where the patients get so engrossed in the scene that it alleviates their pain.
Nancy has developed “Art For Relaxation” classes to help people in recovery from addictions and serious illnesses. Relaxation techniques such as soft music, flowing fountains and aroma therapy are used to help people relax and enjoy the process of learning to paint. Nancy now teaches at the Wallkill River School of Art where she was a member of the Board of Directors for several years. Nancy also works for the New York Cancer Foundation teaching relaxation classes for the cancer patients.
In 2013, Nancy was chosen to receive the “Champion Of The Arts” award from the Orange County Arts Council. She was also voted #1 acrylic artist in the region in 2010.
