Ms. Jones is originally from New York, NY, and studied commercial art at Brooklyn College, NY.

 

“I find great joy in art,” Ms. Jones said. “I am always intrigued by art that is challenging and captures my inner creativity.  I love to work with young artists, and my goal is to inspire and encourage them to make the most of their talent.”  

 

She is a member of the World Fine Arts Group, composed of artists all over the world. Presently her artwork is on exhibition at the Clark Atlanta University Art Galleries, Atlanta, GA.  She will also be exhibiting at the Agora Gallery, New York, NY.
