Barbara Jones

Barbara Mildred Jones was born in Croydon on Christmas Day in 1912. After attending Croydon High School for Girls and Croydon Art School, she eventually came to study Mural Decoration at the Royal College of Art – and then came to belong to that distinctive group of artists and illustrators of whom John Piper, Edward Bawden, Eric Ravilious and Edward Ardizzone are perhaps the best known.

Barbara Jones is best known for her striking mural designs for the Festival of Britain (1951) and the classic designs for the childrens television series the Woodentops.
