Emily Jones is an aspiring oil painter working and studying in Los Angeles, CA.
She was born and raised in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, and graduated from H.D. Jacobs High School as the faculty nominated Art Student of her graduating year. She then graduated from Elgin Community College with an Associate of Art and an Associate of Fine Art. In 2010, she and her husband moved to Los Angeles.
Emily is currently studying painting as a senior at California State University Northridge. She supplements her education by creating original, commissioned paintings. Her professional work is often humorous and pop culture referential, while her personal work is more contemplative and emotive.
