About me

My name is Monika Jones, Mon Jones for short. I am a self-taught artist and painting is my passion. I work full time at my regular job and my paintings are results of the moments I have after work and during weekends.

My paintings are mostly oils with occasional multimedia techniques. Because it takes months to complete an oil painting, I work in series of paintings. Sometimes it can take years to complete a single series.

The inspiration for my work are world mythologies, folk lore and original Grimm fairy tales.

I live in Hollywood, Florida with my husband and 2 cats and a dog. My other hobbies are fabric art and my subtropical garden.
