Jessica is a painter, screen printer, and illustrator based out of Columbus, Ohio. Her works in all mediums are primarily influenced by urban landscapes that she's visited throughout the US and Europe. Working from original photographs, she creates her own interpretation of the mood and atmosphere of the location with an expressive color palette and dramatic composition.
Growing up in a small Appalachian town near Wheeling, West Virginia, Jessica began painting in oils at a young age. She exhibited paintings locally throughout high school before being awarded a full scholarship to the Columbus College of Art and Design. In 2008 she received a BFA from CCAD, majoring in Illustration with a minor in Fine Arts/Printmaking. During this time, Jessica spent a semester abroad in Florence, Italy, at Studio Art Centers International.
