Taliaferro Jones graduated form Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston where she received her BA in Art History, and her BFA in Photography and in Glass, Mixed Media Sculpture. Most recently, Taliaferro spent two years doing post graduate work at Sheridan College's Glass Program in Canada refining her sculpture. She exhibits internationally. Taliaferro now teaches "Exhibition Planning" "Glass Marketing and Publicity," and photography at Sheridan College.

Between her time at Tufts and Sheridan, Taliaferro traveled extensively throughout Europe and Central America. Discovering the many different cultural and spiritual forces on her journey, she inevitably came to reflect findings in her work.

"...referencing sacred geometry and symmetry from a variety of cultural and spiritual beliefs.....she seeks to trigger unexplored approaches to the intangible within the viewer."

Utilizing texture, form and light, Taliaferro explores the essence of balance from thephysical to the spiritual in her glass sculptures. Her sensual minimal glass sculptures incorporate the macro patterns of sand, water, grass and other natural elements on their surface. In her sculpture Taliaferro looks at the overall pattern and hones in on its intrigue in order to draw out the ever ephemeral elements of balance. Seeking and attaining balance is a constant journey, with ever shifting layers and levels which continually drives Taliaferro's work forward.
