Jerome W Jones Jr.

For over 40 years Jerome W. Jones, Jr. has been using his original paintings to teach “THE ART OF LIFE THROUGH THE LOVE OF ART” to inspire the young and old to use their gifts to uplift others. Jerome’s creative style of portraiture reflects the likeness of his The Painters PoetTree Logo12 - Jerome Jonessubjects and what they love to do. He specializes in original portraits, landscapes and still life paintings. Jerome has over 100 autographed portraits in his “Ingenious Artistic Minds (I AM)” collection of paintings. Each portrait painting tells the story of “Who I AM, What I AM, and Where I AM.” His work is in the collection of Stevie Wonder, Evander Holyfield, Michael Jordan, Michael Vick, LaVar Arrington, VCU Health Systems and the City of Richmond and many other private and public collections. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1980.

In 1987, Jones founded The Painter’s Poetree. This full-time business features Jones’ original paintings, limited and open edition prints, poetry in cards and books.
