TESTIMONIALS

ARTLICKS

“The success of this body of work derives from the fact that this does not become about self-pitty or an attempt to evoke sympathy. Jones has put herself at the centre of a project that addresses a range of topics relating to imposed ideals, societal roles, personal relationships and autobiography” - Adam Murray, Art Licks

EUPHORIA ONLINE

“Absorbed in a world so consumed with sheer vanity, there’s nothing more refreshing then the work of Ayesha Jones. With a creativity that breathes authenticity…. Ayesha uses her illness to inspire her creative journey- and deliver an art which is both visually and intellectually fulfilling.

 

At the core of her work is the notion of beauty affecting female desire, sexuality and even perceptions of what it means to be a woman. Yet the depth of her art also extends to wider society” - Euphoriaonline.co.uk

DAILY MAIL

“As a woman and mother of two daughters I love Ayesha Jones for showing the world that beauty comes from within. Thank you to this young woman for leading a beautiful life on her own terms. That's exactly the kind of beauty the world needs more of”- Anonymous Comment

"Your story has inspired me to become more than how people look at me. It feels so wonderfull to have someone who is like me to prove the world wrong that beauty comes from within the heart and soul"- Anonymous Comment
