I Alicia Noelle Jones, am an independent Fine Artist and Designer.
I was born in Jamaica and currently live in Brooklyn New York. I create acrylic paintings and watercolors. My designs show the archetypes of my Caribbean roots, combined with the culture of living in Brooklyn. The environment fascinates me and is a big source of my inspiration. I love to experiment with techniques and bright colors.
I started ANoelleJay in 2014 to show my paintings to the world and it has developed not only into a way to create imaginative paintings, but also into fashion design and home décor.
The tricky thing about nature is its variety and its vastness. There is so much of the earth that we have never seen and cannot possibly ever see in this lifetime. As an artist, I hope to create a little bit of that wonder. My current collections as well as my works in progress can be seen here: ANoelleJay.com.
When I started ANoelleJay, my goal was to either create a new piece every week or to finish an old piece. This not only forces practice, but it also focuses the mind on setting tangible goals. Since then, creating has become so natural that my aspirations are larger, and yet I am still accomplishing them and very happy doing so.
To accomplish my goals, I needed to push myself beyond my comfort zone. The uncomfortable zone is where magic happens, where a little bit of glory dwells, and being willing to embrace that stretching process produces success.
I am very excited about where my art will lead me and really hope that even more people will get to experience and enjoy my work. The next goal is to get my original art and home decor into every home physically, in publications, and on your screens via movie & TV sets!
I accept commissioned works, I enjoy creating your vision with you.
