Liam Jones was born in Ballina, Co. Mayo. The wild beauty of the surrounding countryside was a powerful catalyst in moving him into the world of landscape painting.
He is widely travelled having worked in Europe and America, but he was continually drawn back to this country and to the West of Ireland in particular.
He held his first one-man exhibition in Dublin over thirty years ago. Since then he has been recording, in a personal way, the ever-changing moods and light of the West.
