About The Artist
My name is Juliana Jones and I’m an artist with a love of paper art and miniature worlds.
I love to explore, experience and learn and I’ve always had a passion to create and design. As a child, I loved to experiment with any type of arts & crafts that I could get my hands on. I’d take a piece from here and a smidgen from there and pull them together to create something new that can now take on a life of its own.
As a military brat, my mom and I traveled all over the United States, Japan, and Europe. In art college, I trained and experimented with all sorts of things, from drawing, painting, and sculpting to computer graphics, web development, and 3D animation. I went on to become a website developer, got married and started a family of my own. We have a girl and a boy; a little creation of our own.
I work out of my home studio in central Iowa. I am inspired by the vastness of God’s creations and I do my best to take time to fully immerse myself in new experiences, using my senses to take it all in. I love to create things from a mixture of mediums, textures, genres, and cultures. I enjoy the process of taking a blank canvas and element-by-element turning it into a unique work of art.
My life has always centered around art and creation. It’s in my DNA. Now it’s time to share it with the world.
Thank you and enjoy!
