Artist Bio:
Juliana Jones is an up-and-coming Midwest artist in central Iowa who is known for creating 3-dimensional experiences from 2-dimensional paper. She is also a wife, mother, and website developer. She grew up in Japan, Europe, and the United States, and was always using her creativity through dancing, singing, and making crafts. In art school, she trained and experimented in many different mediums to express her creativity, from drawing, painting, and sculpting to computer graphics, web development, and 3D animation. She took her creativity into a career in Graphic Design and Website Development. But her strong desire to once again physically create with her hands has brought her back to her artistic practice. It has given her a new way to express untapped thoughts and emotions. She hopes that her art evokes an emotion in people and ultimately wants to inspire others to let their light shine bright.
Her art has been shown at juried art shows and festivals including “Greater Des Moines Exhibited XXVI” (The Polk County Heritage Gallery, Downtown Des Moines, IA), Octagon Art Festival (Downtown Ames, IA), as a solo installation at the Ames Chamber of Commerce (Downtown Ames, IA), and in a Downtown Ames window display for the Octagon’s “Outrage to Change” event in 2020. Her work won a “Best in Show” honorable mention at the “Octagon Art Festival” in 2019 and is part of the public collection at Ames City Hall. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Media Arts & Animation from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, FL.
