Earlier this year Stuff Homed paid us a visit to capture a snapshot of our home and life as an artist working from our home in Auckland...
Earlier this year, the newly refurbished Christchurch Town Hall was opened to the public. This refurbishment project was undertaken to strengthen foundations and repair damage caused by the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, along with an upgrade and refurbishment of the existing facility.
Glenn Jones Art was selected to provide art work for the green rooms, orchestra room, conductors room, offices and staff room. We are really pleased that a NZ artist has been chosen, and that a number of Glenn's New Zealand inspired art prints fill out the town hall.
"Home-based Internet business Glenn Jones Art has created its own ‘Big Bang’ right around the world with its highly popular T-shirt designs and ‘Kiwiana’ art.
Glenn Jones Art is a family-centric, Internet-based business that operates from an office and the kitchen table in the Westmere, Auckland villa of Glenn and wife Julia.
Production and shipping are farmed out. The business doesn’t hold stock, has no employees and is self-funding.

Resene has been colour matching their paints to our prints - and we think this is a perfect colour match!
Did you know that Resene is still owned and run by the same family that started it over 70 years ago, right here in New Zealand? That's something to aspire too! Here at Glenn Jones Art, we love aligning ourselves with other great businesses, and Resene is one that we particularly like, as they are innovative, have a highly regarded product, and they are often the colour background to our art on New Zealand walls!

Mother's Day is Sunday the 13th of May this year. Unfortunately we can't give our Mum's a piece of Glenn Jones Art (as they already have more than enough), but you can!
We always think that there is something for everyone in our range (there's over 200 pieces on our website at the moment), but we've picked out some of our favourites for Mum.
LA Design have ordered a selection of our art for the new Revival Cafe in Blenheim. The cafe wanted to create a welcoming, fun, retro space, and we think they've nailed it - it looks amazing. Here are the photographs.
These are A1 size and framed in black. If you want to check them out, you can see them at Springlands Shopping Centre in Blenheim
Like a chocolate fish? It would appear Glenn does!
Chocolate fish are a favourite chocolate treat from Glenn's childhood - they were often given as a reward when we were children. A chocolate fish is made from a strawberry marshmallow with a chocolate coating. And, they are quite delicious!!
We've got a number of chocolate fish prints to choose from - some are perfect for the fisherman, the foodie, the homesick kiwi, and some are just for fun. We know though that they all look great on the wall!
