About The Artist:

Shields Landon (S.L.) Jones was one of 13 children born to his sharecropper father in Franklin County, VA. He is a well-known American Folk Artist primarily famous for his carvings. Jones also created works on paper and was an accomplished fiddler and banjo player.

S.L. Jones' use of frontal positioning, broad flat surfaces, and foreshortened torsos reflects his own solutions to artistic problems rather than reliance on the advice or experience of academia.
