Jessica grew up drawing and painting in northwestern Pennsylvania and earned her B.F.A. from Kendall College of Art & Design in MI. Watercolor has been her medium of choice, ever since she was exposed to it by a few talented professors. Soon after college, she headed for the big skies and mountains of Montana, where she is still happily settled and paints with a passion from her home studio.
The intention of her subject matter--namely antiquated structures, Western cultural objects, and angular forms in nature--is to tell a subtle story, to inspire a closer look, and a moment of private study and appreciation for thoughtfully crafted areas of character and definition.
Jessica is a signature member of the Montana Watercolor Society. She exhibits her award-winning work frequently in shows at the Hockaday Museum of Art in Kalispell, MT and other National juried shows. She is represented by Whitefish Pottery/Stillwater Gallery in Whitefish, MT, Persimmon Gallery in Bigfork, MT, and Tendoy Fine Art in Dillon, MT.
