Biography

BIOGRAPHY

Frederique Jones (b France) is a visual artist who graduated from University of Kent with a First-Class Honours degree in Fine Art in 2017. After graduating Frederique took time off to look after her two young daughters and to develop her art practice and network.

She currently engages with the Sevenoaks Visual Arts Forum (SVAF), an artist led community and space at Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery, co facilitated by artists and curators Rosalind Barker and Sue Evans. She is also enrolled in the Fine Art Professional Development program (FAPD) based in Tonbridge and led by artists and lecturers Samuel Herbert and James Brooks (until 2020).

Frederique would like to apply for a masters degree when she is able to fully commit to it. In the meantime, she volunteers at West Kent Mind where she co-facilitates the creative group.
