“Born in London, now living in Suffolk, Jacquie was always mad about horses but not being able to own one of her own she created them for herself – on paper.” Tudor Galleries Online: Jacquie Jones.
“After a short time as a window dresser, at the age of 16, Jacquie was drawn to Newmarket and two years later obtained her first proper job in racing, working for trainer Ian Balding (born 1938) with her last outing as an amateur jockey in 1984.” Suffolk Artists, JONES, Jacquie.
“She has exhibited widely both here and in the United Arab Emirates and has been Artist in Residence at the National Horse Racing Museum. Her paintings are in the collections of Sheikh Mohammed, the Princess Royal and the late Queen Mother.” Brook Gallery: Jacqui Jones.
“Honestly, I’m a Tranny and I wish my clothes looked like her’s.” Punk Globe: British Mod Painter, Jacquie Jones, by Samantha Jane, December 2019.
This one has more riding, less racing. Conversation Pieces – Ascot Gallery: Jacquie Jones Prints.
