Getting To Know The Artist

Desia Jones

My name is Desia Jones. I was born and raised in New Jersey and I moved to Maryland in the summer of 2008. I went to Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts and graduated class of 2012. I am currently studying photography at Towson University. I was given my first camera at 9 years old and I have been taking pictures ever since. I am taking this class to learn the basics of web design so that one day I can create my own website for my business. It's also a requirement to graduate. I am looking forward to learning how to create exciting websites for my customers to use with easy access. I also want to learn the best way to present my work online.

I have a full and busy life outside of school. I work full time as a karate instructor at American Kenpo Karate. I have been working with children for eight years and counting. Some of my hobbies include karate, bowling, kayaking, and gaming. I am a very social person and I love to go to sports events with friends and family.

My focus for many of my photos is children and/or sports. I love taking action shots of people in their most intense moments playing a sport. Basketball, volleyball, and football are my main focusese in the sports world, but I enjoy children's studio photos as well.
