A native of Guines, Havana Cuba, Nelly Zamora Jones and her family moved to the United States at the age of ten. With a rich background of indelible childhood memories and diverse cultural experiences, she does not recall a time in her life when art was not her main mode of expression. Each piece is a progression of what has come before.
Nelly is the recipient of the Cintas Fellowship Foundation Visual Arts, '76. She has traveled extensively in Europe and exhibited at the Salon of Contemporary Art in Paris, France, '85.
