Louise Jones (formerly Chen) was born and raised in Los Angeles to Shanghainese parents. She studied drawing and printmaking at UC Santa Cruz, and continued a steady studio practice after graduating. She was heavily involved in Los Angeles bicycle culture after college, which inspired her to make public art and experiment with different creative outlets. She moved to Detroit in 2013 and was soon commissioned to do her first outdoor public mural. She has made over 50 public works since 2013, and continues to make work in and outside the studio.
