    Signed lower left: Bird Jones

    Bird Jones was born in Austin County in 1865, but soon moved to Washington County, where she studied music at Live Oak Seminary. Jones studied art, focusing on ceramics, in Austin as well as St. Louis and New York. She eventually settled in her hometown of Austin where she opened a studio and pursued her passion for teaching art. While few paintings have appeared on the market, Bird Jones is listed in Art and Artists of Texas by Esse Forrester-O'Brien and is still considered one of the finest Austin art teachers (Tardy Publishing, Dallas, 1935).
