Deb Jones was born in NSW and spent her 20s studying at art school or travelling, graduating from the Canberra School of Art with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in1992. She then made the move to the JamFactory in Adelaide where she completed the two-year Associate training program in the Glass Studio from 1993-1994. In 1995 she co-founded a glass studio with fellow artists called Blue Pony Studios. In 2007 she opened a new studio with Jess Loughlin called Gate 8.
Jones has exhibited her work nationally, featuring in major touring exhibitions such as Mind and Matter and Tour de Force: in case of emergency break glass. She has been a prominent artist in the South Australian public art realm with major installations for Adelaide Bus Station, University of South Australia and Lyell McEwin Hospital. Her works are also held in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Art Bank Australia and Australian National Parliamentary Library in Canberra.
Jones' work as an artist and as a designer is honest and responds to the beauty of the glass she uses. Her work employs a minimalist sensibility and she is a strong believer in the mentality of 'less is more.' In her spare time she enjoys drawing, making, and designing just about anything.
