Vera Jones

Artist bio

My name is Vera Jones, affectionately known as Vee. I am the owner of VeeHappyStudios, LLC. My heart's desire is to help those who are suffering from, sadness, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and loneliness. Loneliness is a big one for me as I was once there but I have overcome by the word of God. The artwork that I am submitting represents Christ at the center of my life Luke 9:23, and God's faithfulness as he has blessed me with friends after I overcame loneliness, sadness, and suicidal thoughts through meditating of scriptures to include John 15:5, John 8:31-32, John 15:7, John 13:34-35, John 15:8, John 15:13 and Ephesians 6:10-18 all while attending the MasterLife course through DDS (Divine Discipleship for Sisters) at First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Landover, MD 20785. PTSD is another big one for me as I have lost two family members, my Dad and my nephew who both served in the military and lost their lives as a result of PTSD. After my husband and I separated and later divorced. I would affirm myself saying, "Vera" just Vee happy girl. Through prayer God heard me and my "husband" and I have remarried, celebrating 30+ years. Once again, I had to affirm myself after losing my job, telling myself, "Vera, just Vee happy". With an Associate of Arts degree, while unemployed and as a result of my love and passion for art, VeeHappy Studios, LLC was birth. I have facilitated many paint parties and hosted many paint sessions with civilians and the military alike and during those moments, I would hear the participants say, "This is so therapeutic!" so God placed it on my heart to focus on those who are in need of relief through art. If I'm selected as the winner under the Visual Arts category, I would take the winnings and open several VeeHappy art studios, offering support service through Art Therapy, Art Meditation, and Art Yoga to those suffering from, sadness, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and loneliness as I relax not everyone likes to talk about their problems but can find great benefits through art. Thank you so much for your time, prayers, and support. Please visit us at and Remember to VeeHappy! God who is my Director of Creativity!

Artist Statement

My visual art includes a 3" Barbie doll, who represents myself, according to the scriptures, John 15: 5, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
The wooden cross represents Christ and the center of my life and the scripture, Luke 9:23, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
And 4 regular size barbie dolls which represent my friends according to the scriptures, John 15: 7, "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."

I painted my thoughts on canvas and this was a therapeutic moment and a perfect time to meditate on the word of God.

How it fits into contest

My artwork in the painting represents that I am clothed in the armor of God. I know that the enemy wants to kill me but I an strong in the Lord, the word of God, and His powers over the devil. I put on the full armor of God, daily and this paining is visual that is before me reminding me that my struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the wickedness of satan and the power of darks in this world. I can stand boldly and confident knowing that I wear the Armor of God, the breastplate of righteousness, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.


Rhonda Hicks, my DDS Facilitators for giving me the MasterLife assignment, Shameka Price for buying the wooden cross. My husband, Richard Jones for emotional support and for loving me.
