Ambrosia Jones is an artist, healer and writer who works in watercolour, ceramics, felt, photography, scent, music and any other medium she puts her hands on. She specialises in what she calls Mystical Realism and her art is a reflection of how she sees and interacts with the world around her. Ambrosia uses vibrant colours to show the inherent magic and sacredness of Mother Earth and the energy that runs through her.
Much of Ambrosia’s work is inspired by her extensive travels, living and working in outback Australia as a remote area nurse. She has worked with at-risk teenagers in outback schools, taught art therapy and run workshops and classes on energy healing and earth shamanism for three decades. She was the founder of the Blue Pentacle, a Pagan healing organisation focused on bridging the divide between modern medicine and alternative healing practices. She has also written articles and regular columns on traditional healing methods for different publications.
Ambrosia is the mother of three young women, grandmother to two boys, and honorary parental figure to seven ‘extra-curricular’ children, teens and young adults.
She does her best to work anywhere she has access to art supplies – and as you won’t find her travelling without watercolours, pencils and pens, that is everywhere, including on two-person planes on the way to remote area nursing jobs. Hand her unmoulded clay, a child, pigment or paper and she will produce something beautiful.
Ambrosia has spent her life creating, bringing beauty to the world and comfort to all who need it as a mother, a nurse, and an artist.
