Artist Portfolio Magazine – 2017 Q4 Art Competition
Stella Jones – Los Angeles, CA
I am a native of Los Angeles, California and the schools I attended were Wilshire Crest Elementary, John Burroughs Jr High, and Santa Monica High School.
All my life I have been an art enthusiast. In 2007, after recovering from a debilitating disease, I returned to my first love of stone sculpting. The inspiration for my sculptures comes from the strength shown by passionate individuals and God’s earthly creation.
My gift has earned me several coveted exhibition opportunities. Most recently my sculptures were exhibited at the Oscars, Emmys, MTV, and ESPY Award pre-shows. Additionally, one of the high points of my career occurred in 2008 when my sculpture, Unity, was selected to be displayed in the White House. Now the (Unity) sculpture is a permanent art piece in the White House as of 2009.
My stone sculptures represent strength, harmony, calmness, and peacefulness to enhance the beauty in life as an inspiration to others to never give up on one’s dream.
My art training includes attending Otis Art Institution, Santa Monica Jr. College and UCLA. My art career has kept me well rounded and balance with life’s challenges. I hope my art journey will continue to inspire.
