Patrick J. Jones was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and grew up during the height of Ireland’s conflicts. Inspired by artists Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta, he decided to follow in their footsteps come hell or high water.
With the support of a loving wife and two scruffy dogs, he now works from his studio in sunny Brisbane, Australia, using FTP to cable art worldwide to the likes of Lucasfilm and Disney Studios. He also runs SF & Fantasy Masterclasses teaching advanced Illustrator, Photoshop and Corel Painter at Gold Coast TAFE and Southbank Institute of Technology.
Recent commissions have included 13 horror classic paintings for Easton Press and the entire repackaged Deathstalker line for Roc Books.
