Colin Stewart Jones is an artist first – then a writer. He paints with whatever materials he has to hand, mainly household paint and recycled materials. He sometimes makes sculptural assemblage pieces with discarded objects he finds in skips or on the street. Likewise, Colin takes what he finds from his daily life to produce short image-based poetry, utilising the haiku style.
Colin holds an MA degree in Gaelic Studies and an MLitt in Irish-Scottish Studies. He is also the editor for Gean Tree Press which produces Notes from the Gean, a monthly haiku journal.
