Jamie Jones

Jamie Jones is a relative newcomer to the art world, despite having a huge passion for art and creativity his whole life.

A successful 20 year career in the drinks industry (GB World Class Bartender of the Year 2017, Global Gin Connoisseur 2013, global bar consultant for 15 years) put a pause on any artwork being created, yet art featured heavily in the countless cocktail menus Jamie curated around the world.

In 2017, Jamie launched “Mirage”, a 2 year long project at the Michelin starred restaurant City Social, London, which was the worlds first Augmented Reality cocktail menu and a journey of art through the ages.

It was at the start of 2020 when he decided a career change was needed and started teaching himself to draw and paint again.

Since then, Jamie’s original work has been sold to collectors all over the world and he has exhibited a number of times in both Manchester and Cyprus, where Jamie now resides and where his studio is based.

Jamie has created bespoke artwork for suites at INNSiDE Hotel Manchester, album artwork for the band The 1968, branding for a national tropical liqueur and painted a large number of private commissions.

This year he has designed a bespoke label for a limited edition scotch whisky launching in June and is currently working on the illustrations for a children’s book set to launch in December 2022.
