Judy Jones writing is a gift of genius; shocking and moving you to tears; touching the deepest inner part of your humanness and spirit! Judy's Complete Bio @ http://tinyurl.com/3b2thel......
Judy is an author, actress, artist, photographer, poet, and librettist. Her acting credits include appearances on the Discovery Channel plus in such movies and TV programs as Dreaming of the Dead, Dora the Explorer, Trauma, and The Walking Dead. Judy’s upcoming book When a Saint Calls, Surrender! promises to be inspirational indeed, for it concerns her work with Mother Teresa.
Bones of the Homeless, Judy’s first book, is filled with stark black and white images of the homeless alongside “in your face” poems about the plight of the homeless. Her first spoken word/music CD recorded by Ray Charles bass player Curtis Ohlson includes many of the poems in this book.
According to Terry Messman, The “Street Spirit” newspaper editor, Judy's poems about the homeless “speak directly to the souls of the readers and appeal to our hearts for rebirth of compassion, justice, and love towards the poorest of our brothers and sisters.”
Jones added to her artistic recognition by winning the “Brava for Women in the Arts” contest in San Francisco for her opera libretto based on the life of painter Frida Kahlo and her muralist husband Diego Rivera. Judy’s painting of Janis Joplin has also received widespread acclaim. Her Judy Joy Jones Show aired on BlogTalkRadio from 2008 to 2010 with celebrity guests including scientists, authors, publishers, musicians/composers and entertainers.
Judy wrote for the Coronado Journal Newspaper as she traveled around the world doing volunteer work with Mother Theresa's Missionaries of Charities and on The Great Peace March. (Hands Across America)
Her photographs and paintings manifest a deep love and compassion for humanity and are shown worldwide. While the stark black and white photographs of the homeless, from her book "Bones ofthe Homeless" are as Borders Books says of her poetry "urgent, lively, and often haunting," her paintings such as the Janis Joplin and Mother Teresa portrait are full of emotion, color and movement, delving into the spirit, and the human experience of her subject.
Bones for the Homeless and Ode to Janis Joplin, Judy's spoken word/music CD, was recorded by Curtis Ohlson, Ray Charles bass player and is for sale at Amazon.com; Cody's Books, Moes Books, Berkeley and Amoeba Records both in San Francisco's Haight/Ashbury area and on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, California.
The Street Spirit newspaper in Berkeley publishes her poems regularly and her homeless photographs have been published around the world including England's The Big Issue magazine and are hanging in the San Francisco Night Ministry and have been in the San Francisco Coalition for the Homeless.
