SATISFY YOUR CRAVINGS,
FEED YOUR SOUL.
The true beauty of Art lies in its ability to manifest a language that we can all comprehend.
Nneka Jones is a contemporary multidisciplinary artist who enjoys working in mixed media, embroidery, textiles and paint exploring both large-scale mural work and small-scale, intimate pieces. The Trinidadian born artist produces thought-provoking artwork that comments on social and environmental injustice; strongly advocating for the protection of women and girls of color. These are often topics that as a society, we feel uncomfortable addressing but are necessary for positive change.
Since graduating from the University of Tampa in May 2020, Jones’ work has caught the eyes of Art directors in top publications like TIME where she was commissioned to produce the hand embroidered flag that appears on the cover of the August 31st/ September 7th 2020 issue. She was also commissioned by the Washington Post to capture the history made by Vice President Kamala Harris and even appeared as a keynote speaker for Adobe MAX; emphasizing the importance of art as a vehicle for activism.
Her unique hand embroidery work has been featured in Colossal magazine, The Jealous Curator blog, The American Craft Council, Embroidery Mag UK and Domestika. With permanent collections in the Florida Craft Art Gallery, Ferman Art Center and Tampa Museum of Art, Jones continues to broaden her professional practice and break barriers at an early stage in her career as an inspiration to other young aspiring artists.
