ABOUT THE ARTIST

BORN IN MASSACHUSETTS AND RAISED ON THE SEACOAST OF NEW HAMPSHIRE, JESS FOLLOWED HER PASSION FOR ART AND STUDIED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. SHE BEGAN AS A STUDIO ART MAJOR BUT WAS FINDING HERSELF IN A CREATIVE RUT, UNABLE TO ENJOY HER ARTWORK LIKE SHE USED TO. FOR FEAR OF LOSING HER CREATIVITY, SHE SWITCHED HER MAJOR TO ART HISTORY AND STUDIED ABROAD IN LONDON IN 2011 TO DIP HER TOES INTO MODERN AND POP ART. 

SINCE GRADUATING IN 2013, SHE HAS LIVED ACROSS THE UNITED STATES: MASSACHUSETTS, CALIFORNIA, CONNECTICUT, AND SOUTH CAROLINA. SHE NOW RESIDES IN NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, UNITED KINGDOM FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS TO A YEAR. 

ABOUT THE WORK

I AM OBSESSED WITH BRIGHT COLORS. MUCH OF MY WORK REFLECTS DARK AND LIGHT TONES TO CREATE POPPING FLORALS. I HAVE FOUND FLOWERS TO BE THE BEST WAY TO DEPICT THESE BRIGHT COLORS ON MY CANVAS. 

I LOVE TO EXPERIMENT WITH UNNATURAL TONES ON MY PALETTE WHETHER IT'S CREATING LIGHT BLUE LEAVES ON A ROSE, OR FLUORESCENT PURPLE TO MY PETALS. MY GOAL IS TO PAINT IMAGES THAT WILL ACCENT A ROOM AND SEND POSITIVE VIBES TO  YOUR HOME.


I'm available for commissions!
