17 year-old Amaranthia Sepia (Eternal Brown Flower) Gittens-Jones is a home schooled artist. She attended Pal International School and Nischimachi International School, Tokyo, Japan 2004-2006 before returning to Public school in America. At age eight, shortly after her return from Tokyo, she declared her purpose, which is to become a self-supporting and successful artist. She has been on a focused and disciplined mission to achieve her goal since then.

Those early years in Japan influenced Amaranthia's unique art style. She did not realize how much she was inspired by Japanese culture, history, people, environment and architecture until she returned home to America.

In later years , after she had chance to review her earlier years in Japan, Amaranthia became fascinated by the use of foxes in their mythology. She spent many hours researching and learning about this aspect of Japanese culture. Through these efforts she developed a love for foxes and they became a central focus of her work.

Amaranthia is also entranced by how the Japanese practice of Shinto and Buddhism informs every aspect of the Japanese lifestyle. These influences continue to inform her work now she is older. Amaranthia is a fan of Japanese artist Tezuka.
