Jessica's paintings are primarily spontaneous gestural abstractions celebrating the physicality and fluidity of the medium of paint. Created with multiple transformative layers over a period of many months, they are inspired by biological or manufactured forms and various emotional or physical life experiences. The more minimal works are reminiscent of watercolor painting and are done in one session.
Jessica was born and raised in upstate New York in the Central-Leatherstocking Region and graduated from Skidmore College with a degree in Studio Art in 1997. Since then she has been living and working in New York City balancing studio and painting time with her work as freelance art director and graphic designer.
