ABOUT

Althea Jones is an interdisciplinary artist based in Northeast, Ohio. Inspired by the human condition, Althea uses her work to explore personal authenticity and community. She believes in the concept of perfect imperfection and enjoys creating work from discarded items and lively strokes, scrapes and splashes of paint. 

 

Althea developed her passion for art as a child and rekindled her love affair with the creative world after leaving her corporate career. She enjoys all manners of creativity including poetry, street photography, textiles and painting. Since 2017, Althea has been searching for her authentic voice and developing her art practice. She has enjoyed a grass roots approach to art, showing, selling and creating both traditional sized canvases and large format murals in restaurants, coffee shops, abandoned buildings and street corners in the US Northeast.  

 

In 2022, Althea took a leap of faith and enrolled in Myers Art School at the University of Akron where she is seeking a BFA. With the support of a village of educators and professionals, she is exploring a variety of art medium and conceptual ideas. 


Her current project Skin Color is a foray into social practice, where she is encouraging community members to appreciate and acknowledge their uniquely beautiful skin colors.
