About Jessica


Jessica has always been a curious observer, and along with that curiosity came the necessity to document; to record the visual absurdities and narratives she sees repeated through the objects and people in her everyday life. Her work explores the figures’ ability to carry emotion and story through the body, as well as the underlying figurative nature of objects personified.

These observations are sometimes simple, sometimes serious, and often spiritual, even silly at times, but her drawings and paintings are always incarnations of these observations, and the emotional connections attached with them.

She graduated in 2008 with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting from BIOLA University. She has continued on to complete a variety of commissions, donations for charity art auctions, and participated in local shows. In 2010 she was the recipient of the Award for Artistic Excellence for the painting “Esther”, which was purchased by the City of Pleasanton as part of the City Fine Arts Purchase Program.

Too scary

How do we define art?....Is it simply to make us happy or to define some uplifting powerful moment of human endeavors? I don't think so; art also probes the difficult conditions of the human psyche as depicted in this work.

cool

scary

That looks painfully deep and horror filled
