Victoria Emily Jones graduated from UNC–Chapel Hill in 2010 with a BA in journalism and English literature and a minor in music, and she has done some postgraduate coursework in worship and the arts at Regent College in Vancouver. Now she works as an editorial freelancer and pursues independent research on Christianity and the arts, with a special interest in visual art that engages with biblical narratives, especially from the twentieth century onward and/or from non-Western cultures.

Victoria serves on the board of the Eliot Society, an Annapolis-based nonprofit that promotes spiritual formation through the arts, and as curator for The Daily Prayer Project, which publishes cross-cultural liturgies, music, and art for the Christian year. She is a member of Christians in the Visual Arts (CIVA) and a contributor to the Visual Commentary on Scripture. From 2015 to 2022 she served as assistant editor of ArtWay, a Netherlands-based web publication that encourages Christian engagement with historical and contemporary art; she continues to write “visual meditations” for the site (see list below).

Based on the work she had done through her blog The Jesus Question (the precursor to Art & Theology), Victoria was selected in 2016 to participate with a small group of scholars and artists in the two-week Calvin College seminar “Bodies of Christ: Visualizing Jesus Then and Now,” led by Ed Blum, coauthor of The Color of Christ. Racialized representations of Christ remains one of her ongoing topics of inquiry.
