Joni Foster a.k.a Ms Jone$ was born in the middle of the 20th century and schooled in Salisbury, Rhodesia – now Zimbabwe. She emigrated to South Africa in 1979, where she now resides.

Ms Jone$ is self-taught artist and works across various mediums. Having worked in the South African film industry for over 20 years, she was able to put her exceptional skills to use. Props, fabrications, food styling, flower arranging, costumes, clothing, and sculptureā€¦to name but a few. Her attention to detail is famed far and wide and she is now putting this extraordinary skill to good use as a bronze sculptor.
