Sonya M. Jones' Profile

About

I am Sonya M. Jones creator and designer of Tee-iabo Designs. I've had a love for art and creativity for as long as I can remember. However, teaching autistic and down-syndrome children was the profession I ventured into after graduating from the New York Institution of Technology. It was in working with these children my creativity in art started to blossom. In May 2007, I made my first tee-shirt design. It was for the "Children With Special Needs Fun Day" given by the "ARC of Chester County Pennsylvania." My class theme was "The Bizzy Bee Hive" and we had tee shirts designed by me displaying this concept. Shortly, after the success of designing these tee-shirts, I found myself doodling sketches of "Bees anytime there was pen and paper in hand; I became fascinated with them.

I am Sonya M. Jones creator and designer of Tee-iabo Designs. I've had a love for art and creativity for as long as I can remember. However, teaching autistic and down-syndrome children was the profession I ventured into after graduating from the New York Institution of Technology. It was in working with these children my creativity in art started to blossom. In May 2007, I made my first tee-shirt design. It was for the "Children With Special Needs Fun Day" given by the "ARC of Chester County Pennsylvania." My class theme was "The Bizzy Bee Hive" and we had tee shirts designed by me displaying this concept. Shortly, after the success of designing these tee-shirts, I found myself doodling sketches of "Bees anytime there was pen and paper in hand; I became fascinated with them. In June of 2007, I was laid-off due to lack of funding and the position I held was eliminated. I began spending my extra time surfing the web looking at pictures and gathering information about "Bees". One day I came across a picture of a "Bald-faced Hornet." I liked the way he looked so I sketched it, added some animation and thus, my designer bee was born. In March 2009 I trademarked my "Bee" and "Tee-iabo Designs", a life long vision, became a reality.

Tee-iabo Designs is dedicated to the memory of my late mother Bobbie Davis-Tiabo who was my rock. Her encouragement, support and life long inspiration helped me to embark on the journey of establishing my dream. I also give thanks to my loving family for their support and encouragement which has helped me to pursue my dream of becoming an entrepreneur.

My love for creativity and art has provided me an outlet to release my entrepreneurial spirit while selling clothing that I take pride in designing. Each piece is hand-painted/digitally designed by me. Even though the bulk of my inventory is dedicated to my beloved "Bee", I do offer other artistic designs. Keep checking my web page for new product items as they are added.

Thank you for supporting Tee-iabo Designs.
