Dennis Jones grew up in a small town, deep in the Missouri Ozarks… and whenever the doors were open at the little Baptist Church in town you would find the Jones family (mom, dad and six kids) all in attendance. Dennis fine-tuned his artistic abilities each Sunday by drawing on church bulletins during sermons.
While in college, Dennis spent his summers drawing caricatures at Opryland and Silver Dollar City. He graduated from Southwest Missouri University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and has worked as a freelance illustrator since that time.
His artwork has appeared in comics, games, toys, hydraulically animated pizza places, children's Bibles, books, curriculum, cards, newspapers, wall coverings and numerous other things. He is best known for bringing Bible characters and stories to life, a talent which earned him the Platinum Book Award and fans around the world for his original "Read With Me" Children's Bible, published by Zondervan.
