Artists in Residence
Bruce Jones is a local artist from seacoast NH. His loose, bold, and unique paintings are on display in Firefly’s dining room known as the Art Room.
He learned the nuts and bolts of design and composition while attending the New England School of Art and Design in Boston, but he believes that his real education came from working with other professional artists. He was fortunate to travel and learn the art of plein air painting, which generates a lot of abstract qualities, lending itself to his natural expressive style.
He is a lifelong New Englander, and currently lives in Exeter, NH with his artist wife, Tracy, whose artwork is also on display in Firefly’s foyer.
Tracy R. Jones
Tracy was trained as an Art Educator at the Massachusetts College of Art where she had an emphasis in painting, and was influenced to examine, experience, and enjoy the process of creating while finding one’s own aesthetic.
Her large-scale assemblages and paintings explore the relationships between color and shapes while salvaging and utilizing oft-discarded materials and bold forms.
