Jones was a greatly admired figurative painter/printmaker and teacher at UCLA (1953-1963) and UC Irvine, from where he retired in 1990 and settled permanently in Ashland, Ore.

After teaching at the University of Oklahoma and Iowa State University he joined the faculty at UCLA where he established the printmaking department. Although best known for his graphics, Jones also worked as a sculptor in bronze in the 1960s and in wood starting in 1978. Between 1951 and 1997 he had numerous solo exhibitions and participated in over one hundred group shows.
