Emma Jones was born in the Pacific Northwest in 1992. Growing up in a small suburb north of Seattle, she was constantly listening to rock and roll and filling up sketchbooks. As a child, Emma’s passion was creativity. She was always drawing, collaging, painting, and doing whatever she could to put her hands and creative mind to work. As she grew older, she began to talk herself out of pursuing a career that had anything to do with art. As she started her schooling at Brigham Young University, she decided to work towards a degree in Developmental Psychology. After two semesters in the program, Emma felt unsettled by her degree of choice and searched for another major that offered a practical and stable lifestyle. She ended up changing her major three times before she finally allowed herself to forego practicality and do what she loved by working towards being accepted into the Studio Art Program at Brigham Young. She was fortunate to be accepted into the program in 2013 and graduated in 2015 with a degree in Visual Arts with a Studio Arts emphasis. Just three weeks after graduating, Emma moved back to Seattle to pursue a career with Grand Image’s creative team.
Emma’s work includes a large majority of mixed-media painting and collage, bringing together many different mediums to create abstracted, yet cohesive compositions. Her work has been featured in a number of group exhibition shows throughout the United States and Europe.
Emma is currently an artist in residence in THE Studio at Grand Image.
