Ronaele Jones (1945–2010) was an Australian designer and colourist of commercially produced printed furnishing textiles and wall coverings. After study at the East Sydney Technical College, Jones worked as a staff artist for A.G. Wilson Fabrics Australia, designing their co-ordinated wallpaper and fabric ranges, then as a colourist for A. Sanderson & Sons Fabrics & Wall-coverings in England.

As a free-lance artist, Jones’ work was marketed internationally, and here in Australia, was produced and sold by most of the major textile companies of the period.  In 2010 the CSL&RC acquired the Ronaele Jones archive which includes biographical material, ephemera, textiles, sample books and original designs amassed by the designer over a forty year career.
