Mike Jones was born in 1941 and is an artist who took his inspiration from the Welsh culture in which he grew up. The people and the places in the Valley came to influence his work later on in life.
He was brought up in a mining community and his work often reflects the harsh life that his family and neighbours had to bear.
During the nineties, Mike met and became good friends with two celebrated artists whose work he had admired for many years, Josef Herman and Will Roberts.
Mike paints from his studio in the Swansea Valley and he exhibits widely across Wales. His work is increasingly sought after and is in many private collections.
