Rebecca Grace Jones

Rebecca Grace Jones was born into a family of artists in Hagerstown, Maryland. Encouraged to explore her creative abilities from the time she could hold a brush, she produced her first book of illustrated poetry in the second grade.

As an art major at Towson University, Jones studied graphic design and illustration. She received a BFA and began a career as a commercial artist. She produced illustrations for a variety of clients including Time/Life Books, National Geographic Society, Aerospace Corporation, Federal Express and Dupont. After returning to Towson for an MFA, she taught graphic design for 12 years.

When the computer entered the field of commercial art, Jones realized that she preferred a hands-on approach to making art. While in college she had acquired a loom and had taught herself to weave. One day she got the idea to cut up one of her abstract watercolor paintings and weave the strips into a piece of fabric. Happy with the look of this new technique, she decided to enhance the effect by writing words onto the strips.

      The website picture doesn't do it justice. I had it on my wish list for quite a while - hesitating because of the price. But it really is beautiful. I'm very glad I ended up purchasing it.

        I purchased this for a friend who has everything, is difficult to please and appreciates high quality art. She loved the gift and hung it in her kitchen as a constant reminder to keep going in life no matter what is thrown at you!

          It fits nicely on a wall next to a door, inspiring to me as I go out into the world. It's soft earthy tones remind me of the sentiment of the friend who gave it to me.

              I rarely review items I purchase online, but this is so beautiful I had to take the time to post my impressions. First, this is one of my favorite quotes and I first saw it on a mixed-media greeting card several years ago. Second, I initially was a little leery of the price ([$]), but upon receiving the actual item, I can say that it is easily worth twice that amount. This is an absolutely beautiful piece of art - it is not just a "framed print," but rather a unique and obviously hand-made item. The frame is a lovely pine wood, unfinished, which goes wonderfully with the handwoven quote and the textured paper background. I am so very pleased with this item and cannot express how truly gorgeous and well-made it is through words. Highly recommended - especially as a gift for someone who may be going through a rough patch (as I currently am!).
