This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Llewellyn Petley-Jones was a painter born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  He subsequently lived in London, England (1934), Paris (late 1930’s), Vancouver, Canada (1951-1954), and Richmond, England (from 1955) where he died.
 
His mediums were oil, watercolour and woodblock print.  His subjects are landscapes, street scenes, portraits, harbours, coastal views, still life and abstract. The locations for his representational paintings are Alberta, British Columbia, Britain, France and Italy.  His styles were realism, impressionism and abstraction.  He is self taught and became a full time painter about 1930.
 
He was a member of the Edmonton Art Club (1927) and was one of the charter members of the Alberta Society of Artists (1931).  He also served with the Royal Navy in World War II.
 
In addition to showing with the above art groups he has exhibited with the Royal Academy (1935-1943), the Royal Society of British Artists (1935), the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts (Paris/1938), the Salon d’Automne (Paris/1939), the Royal Portrait Society; the Royal Society of British Artists; the New English Art Club; the Royal Scottish Academy; the Royal Hibernian Academy (Ireland); the Royal Institute of Oil Painters; the London Group; the Royal Water Colour Society and the Canadian Group of Painters. He has also exhibited at the National Gallery of Canada (1931), the Art Gallery of Ontario (1950) and the Vancouver Art Gallery (1952).  In 1950 the Edmonton Museum of Arts* did a retrospective of his work.
 
His paintings are in many private collections. They are also in the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto), the Art Gallery of Alberta (Edmonton), the University of Alberta Art Collection (Edmonton), the Nickle Arts Museum (Calgary), the Birmingham Art Gallery (England) and the National Museum of Wales (Cardiff). Portraits he did in 1956 of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh are in the collection of the Alberta legislature.
 
There are dozens of newspaper and magazine articles about Petley-Jones dating from 1933. He is also listed in A Dictionary of Canadian Artists (1974), by Colin S. MacDonald; The Collector's Dictionary of Canadian Artists at Auction" (2001) by Anthony R. Westbridge and Diana L. Bodnar; and in Art Gallery of Ontario – the Canadian Collection (1970), by Helen Pepall Bradfield.  A profusely illustrated chapter is devoted to his work on a 1954 group project, commissioned by the Canadian Pacific Railway, to paint murals for the interior of its trains, in the book by Ian Thom Murals from a Great Canadian Train (1986).
 
* It became the Edmonton Art Gallery in 1956 and since 2005 the Art Gallery of Alberta.
