Exploring the geography of changing landscapes, I search for places I can feel a sense of communication.  I often work at dusk, when color bleeds from the sky and the sublime reveals itself. As the light of day dims, time and movement become an integral part of the photographic process. I find quiet, yet significant moments in the transitional place between land and water, destruction and reclamation, thought and action.”  - Tomiko Jones, Artist Statement, 2017

Jones received her Master of Fine Arts in Photography with a Certificate in Museum Studies from the University of Arizona in Tucson.  Currently, she is teaching photography at Mendocino College while engaged in a self-directed residency in the Anderson Valley.
