Myrtle Jones (January 23, 1913 – February 15, 2005) was an artist whose paintings commonly featured streetscapes and architecture of Savannah, Georgia, as well as portraits.
Jones was born in Winder, Forsyth County, Georgia and moved to Savannah in 1943. A professional hairdresser, Jones formally took up painting in 1950 when she studied at the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences under Emil Holzhauer (among others). Despite this training she has been identified as a self-taught artist, and considered herself to be self-taught.
In 1964 she purchased a house on Gaston Street in Savannah's historic district and used it as her home and studio through the remainder of her career.
