      artist Jo DeSerio Jones of Jomama

                    

 Her JOSEPHINE™ art line is her gallery line, introduced in 2016, to showcase upscale wearable fine art pieces.  All are one of a kind and also available in galleries.

                   

 "I respect the connection I have with the earth and value all it has to offer me in the form of materials and inspiration. My artwork is an extension of my lifestyle and a result of my upbringing, experiences and travels. I've been an artist my entire life and have evolved from canvas to fabric to metal. Being an environmentalist and mixed media artist, I incorporate recycled elements and found objects, as well as eco-friendly products into my work whenever possible, giving things a second chance at life. Having organic roots, my pieces tend to focus on inspiration from nature; and the beauty of age and time." Jo

 With a diverse, collected education, this organic mechanic is drawn to discarded items radiating nature's patina. Crazy about color and texture, and taking it to the next level, she incorporates soldering, casting, fold forming and enameling to add layers to her designs. She also crafts personal family heirlooms into wearable memories.

 Her love for metal has evolved into recent pieces which are a compilation of soldering, cold connections and enamel using recycled cans and steel. Her work can be found at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, as well as in retail boutiques.

 Along with blogging, she is the ICE Resin® certified instructor for Florida, a member of the Society of North American Goldsmiths and a member of the American Craft Council.  She was an ambassador for Bernina, featured in Daily Candy, Celebrate Green eco blog, Antisteez, and OM Times online. She's attended the Penland School of Craft, John C Campbell Folk School, Bead & Button Show, and teaches locally.
