About

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY Visual Artist Holly A. Jones grew up painting and gardening in her hometown of Lansing, Michigan. Holly moved to South Florida in 2008 and the gardens of her youth etched patterns in her memory. The diverse city of Miami is the corner of paradise, surrounded by lush landscapes, tropical waters, and a bustling art scene inspired Holly to produce. FINE ART BY: Holly A. Jones, Inc. was incorporated January 2010. Being a self-published fine artist, Holly has been exhibiting extensively, developing a base of collectors around the world. Her earthy, hands-on upbringing has inspired and given her the ability to work on many different mediums. She is currently seasonal between South Florida and Chicago. 

The ART TO WEAR Collection by Holly A. Jones consists of handbags and travel accessories. Bright, bold colors and abstract botanical subject matter create unique designs, making each item one-of-a-kind. A certificate of authenticity is issued and signed by the artist.
The ART TO WEAR Collection can be acquired in art galleries, museum gift shops or online at elegantartista.etsy.com.

"When a collector carries one of the handbags, I want them to feel empowered as a woman who enjoys being as unique as the piece of art she is holding."
