Biography and Works

Murray Jones is the son of the late LTC (ret) Paul R. Jones, who was a long time member of ASAA.  Murray credits his father for inspiring and teaching him the fundementals of painting.  Murray Jones' love of aviation was also fostered by his father, and Murray is currently an Active-Duty U.S. Army Aviator flying the AH-64D/E Apache as a Standardization Instructor Pilot, with over 21 years of service.  Starting out as an Infantryman in 2001, Murray has served combat tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, and has been deployed twice to South Korea, and currently live in El Paso, TX.  Painting in the classical representational style, Murray counts Kieth Ferris as his primary influencer because his father, Paul R. Jones, admired and studied under him, making Kieth a prominent figure in his life.
