ABOUT SWELL ANCHOR STUDIO

CHRISTIE JONES ~ OWNER / ARTIST
Christie is a south shore native who draws much of her inspiration from Long Island's salty air and crashing waves.
Christie adores teaching her craft and shares her knowledge through hosting creative calligraphy workshops throughout Long Island. To date she’s taught over 550+ people, both male + female, ranging from 14-80 years old!
Christie wholeheartedly believes the saying “you can take the girl out of the ocean but you can’t take the ocean out of the girl” was written about her, as the sea is her main source of inspiration. Her life is fueled by way too much coffee, kisses from her adopted dachshund pups Leo Dorian + Luca Conrad, Patchogue River just seconds from her studio, and overwhelming support from her husband Ian.
IAN JONES ~ STUDIO MANAGER
Ian is the jack of all trades for Swell Anchor Studio. From IT support, photography, and quality control every job that Christie works on passes through Ian's hands too, often on his days off from his full time job. Ian's wit, communication, and organizational skills help Christie stay on track to be the artist of the company. Ian loves coffee, beer, bears, and of course Leo + Luca. He likes the beach "okay."
