About the Artist

Marian Jones is an award winning theatrical producer and artistic director having started The Ivy Theatre in Los Angeles California which ran from 1998-2004. Marian was also the first and only Artistic Director of Women's Works for the Celebration Theatre in LA. Jones was born and raised in Victoria, Texas and moved to Los Angeles after she graduated from Texas State University in 1979. While living in Los Angeles Jones pursued her acting as well worked for a variety of nonprofit social service organizations. She worked with Elizabeth Glazier at the Pediatric AIDS foundation, Northern Lights Alternatives with Rodney Scott, Thee Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center under the direction of Torie Osborn and worked as the personal assistant to designer Tony Duquette. In 2010 Jones moved back to Texas to care for her elderly mother having lost her father in 2009. It was during this time with her mother that Jones realized how precious life really is she also realized how short it is. After her mother pasted she moved back to California settling in the beautiful coastal town of Oceanside. Living four blocks from the ocean allowed Jones the opportunity to do what she loves the most and that is walk the shoreline. It is during this period that Jones realized that perhaps theatre was no longer her desired pursuit. While walking the shore one day she asked her precious father to "walk beside her" and help guide her to a creative place that she new existed but she just didn't know in what form. Shortly after that conversation with her father she was walking along the shore and looked down to see the most beautiful sand. This is sand that she had walked in and along daily for months but it wasn't until this particular day that she saw the incredible design and beauty of its movement. She took her camera and started shooting. SANDS OF OCEANSIDE is the result of this experience. Jones feels quite confident that her father did indeed walk by her side and helped to see natures beauty and to discover a new love.
