This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Painter, muralist, printmaker, illustrator Amy Jones was born in Buffalo, New York in 1899. She studied at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and with Xavier Gonzales, Peppino Mangravite and Carlus Dryer. Among many others, Jones created illustrations for Standard Oil of New Jersey; Woman's Day; and publishing houses Random House, Thomas Y. Crowell, and World Publishing.

Jones has exhibited in venues in America, including Wave Hill, Riverdale, New York in 1977; several times in New York City; Buffalo, New York; Annapolis, Maryland; Miami, Florida; at the Oklahoma Art Center; and New Britain Museum of American Art, Connecticut. She exhibited internationally in Gallery of Glory Be, Kingston, Jamaica, 1975; and Galleria Il Sigilio, Padua, Italy, in 1974, as well as in Venice and Rome. Group shows include the Corcoran Gallery, and National Museum of Art, Washington, D.C.; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; Joclyn Museum, Omaha, Nebraska; and Leicester Galleries, London, England.

She received purchase prizes at the Baltimore Watercolor Club, Maryland, and, in 1958, at the Washington County Museum, Hagerstown, Maryland. An exhibition, in 1961, of the Westchester Artists, New York, yielded a first prize in graphics.

Jones' work is in the collections of the Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, New York; Chrysler Museum, Norfolk, Virginia; New Britain Museum of American Art, Connecticut; New York Hospital, New York City; and the Pepsi Cola Corporation. Six paintings and sketches are in the United States Air Force Art Collection.

Among Jones' murals is one at the U.S. Post Office in Painted Post, in western New York State, painted in the 1930s under the auspices of the Fine Arts Section of the government W.P.A. program. Entitled "Recording the Victory," the mural depicts a Revolutionary War scene of Colonial soldiers captured by a Native American war party. Another mural, "The Glen Family Spared by French Indians," in the U.S. Post Office at Scotia, in eastern New York State, depicts the fate of a local family during the Schenectady Indian Massacre.

Amy Jones was a member of the Society of Illustrators, New York City; Philadelphia Watercolor Club, Pennsylvania; American Watercolor Society; Baltimore Watercolor Club, Maryland; and Portraits, Incorporated.

She was listed in several editions of Who's Who, including the 15th edition of Who's Who in American Art, published in 1982 by the R.R. Bowker Company. Jones also appeared in Collection of Exhibition Catalogues, published in 1979 by G.K. Hall in Archives of American Art; and in Democratic Vistas: Post Offices and Public Art in the New Deal, by Marlene Peck and Gerald E. Markowitz, published by Temple University Press in 1984.
