ABOUT


Born and raised in beautiful Northern California, I've loved making art for as long as I can remember. I began my venture into large scale art when I was introduced to street painting in high school, where artists use chalk to make huge works of art on the pavement. 

In 2008, I graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a BFA in Fine Art with an emphasis in painting and drawing. I enjoy using acrylic and oil paints, chalk pastel, charcoal, graphite, and ink. In 2013, the East Bay Express voted me "Best Artist" in their Best of the East Bay issue. Today, I am living in Oakland, doing work that I love by creating eye-catching, hand-drawn and hand-painted murals for Bay Area businesses.

“Upon first discovering Jolene's work, I was taken with her attention to detail and unique artistic vision. Jolene spent an entire week in the space working on this massive project and delivered a breathtaking depiction of the brewing process that exceeded everyone's expectations. 

“Her artwork has added excitement and a sense of discovery to our space. Customers gawk at the intricacy and beauty of this new piece. Her artwork has truly augmented the Torpedo Room's atmosphere and aesthetic. 

“I would recommend Jolene to anyone who is looking for an ultra-talented artist to catalyze interest and increase the beauty of their business.”

"Jolene was a joy to work with, extremely professional, and incredibly talented. Her attention to detail while doing the work was impressive to watch and the time it took for her to take my ideas and put them into a beautiful design was quick and spot-on. Jolene’s work was worth every penny."
