Isaiah Jones was raised in the mountains of western North Carolina. She received her BFA in Printmaking from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia in the Fall of 2015. Jones utilizes traditional printmaking, language, and storytelling to create individual prints and large-scale installations. Her work investigates love, desire, abuse, memory, and the act of observation. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is held in many private collections.
