That was before the CORONAVIRUS, COVID-19 PANDEMIC QUARANTINE that started in March 2020 until NOW!!!!
Rest in Heaven to those we have lost, comfort our hearts and be our peace in the midst of the storm, GOD BE WITH US IN JESUS NAME, AMEN!
The JuVon Journey officially started in 2015 when two individual artists decided to combine their creative talents to design original fine art with decorative vintage jewelry. Their visionary goals were destined to become a reality.

"The journey continues…"
"We As Black African American visual artists have many different types of obstacles to conquer while living our best life. We have to continuously rebuild our strength and stand firm in our faith everyday in an effort to believe in our creative vision. Therefore it is important for us to uplift and encourage each other as artists because we BeDazzle the Whole Fine Arts World!!!"
