Meet the Artist: Selahmon “Selah” Jones
Medium: Painting, Mixed Media and Jewelry
Highlight: A returning vendor, Selah Jones, is the creator of Cosmic Abstract Creations. She creates a plethora of items from abstract artwork, homemade jewelry (bracelets, earrings and necklaces) and a variety of homemade products (calendual bliss bath salts, coffee scrubs, candles and soaps).
“I’ve always been drawn to the unconventional ways of art, especially the rule breakers and talented creators who refused to adhere to society’s demand for normalcy and ended up paving the way to where we are now.”
Selah first started creating at six years old and spent many years touring the country, selling and sharing her creations. She moved to Jacksonville in 2011 and titles her work as “cosmic abstract art” because she sees herself as intertwined with the mystic energies.
“Creating art was and remains a means to an escape to my occupy time.”
Her art has been featured in MOCA Jacksonville and she is a frequent vendor at the Riverside Arts Market. Make sure to stop by the Cosmic Abstract Creations booth at the next First Wednesday Art Walk!
