I have a multifaceted career history. So far most rewarding was founding my own environmental foundation, ”Take It Back”. I am an environmental activist. I have also enjoyed careers as a producer for large concerts, videos and various ﬁlm projects. I am a published author of a children’s book. After studying in Florence, Italy under old masters artists, I continue to pursue my career as a well respected professional portrait artist.
I am a determined, creative, dedicated and passionate person in any occupation I pursue. Being the daughter of Quincy Jones, this is the only way I know how to live my life: with dedication and passion. Above all else!
