Christine Osada Jones states "art has always been the focus of my professional career." She started out as a beginning illustrator and went on to designing visual merchandising elements. She says she was fortunate to have creativity as her companion over her 20 plus years as the supervisor of the Chicago Public Library's graphics and exhibition design department. Her full time fine art career began in 2000 when she began exhibiting along with her husband in two-person exhibitions. Her works done in oil pastel represent the textures and colors, people and places in which she finds inspiration and have been exhibited in numerous group shows in Illinois as well as on the West Coast.

Richmond Jones enjoyed a lengthy graphic design career working in New York as an art director for several prestigious companies. He established Richmond A. Jones Graphics in Chicago in 1970, operating a graphic design studio successfully for thirty years. In 2000 searching for a new creative direction he began his career as a transparent watercolor painter. Since then Richmond 's work has been exhibited in numerous juried exhibitions around the country and he has received many awards. His work is in private collections throughout the United States .
