Visual Art – Los Angeles - Hollywood, CA

Mika Mae Jones is an illustrator who often performs live painting at her shows. She is currently in Los Angeles where she utilizes her work to express the nature of art as medicine. Her work stems from her personal experiences with the nature of loss and recovery as she has lived her life surviving two debilitating conditions: Epilepsy and Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy. Instead of letting these conditions destroy her, she decided to completely throw herself into her art, as it helped her heal and rise above the confines of her physical body. She began drawing every day during childhood in response to the isolation she felt; and as a young woman she used this passion to truly take flight with her studies; traveling internationally as she studied at the University of Beijing in Beijing, China and Studio Arts Centers International in Florence, Italy. She ultimately received her BFA from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. She hopes to continue her path towards healing through art and to inspire others to do the same. ...more
