MY NAME IS JESS
I am a 22-year-old, Los Angeles native with a dedication to inspiring people through my art. I feel art has the ability to affect the mind and create feelings and changes through visual experiences. I aim to create pieces that will echo deep in the viewers mind.
Art has been something I have been drawn to for as long as I can remember. Not only do I have a huge passion for creating, but I do feel that it runs in my blood as well. My grandparents and parents each had some sort of artistic ability; ranging from photographers and film makers to architects and visual & tattoo artists.
I have nothing but love for my craft; I constantly aim to master as many forms of art as possible. It's all about growth. I love to use pencil, graphite, charcoal, oil, acrylic and water color paint. I also have fun with jewelry making and have apprenticed as a tattoo artist under my father. I believe I'm a creative person all around. I have so much fun experimenting with different mediums!
One of the things that inspires me the most is European art. I have fallen so in love with the style of painting common to that time that i try to own every book and visit every museum as much as possible, just to soak it all in. I also love music. Fortunately, I grew up in the era of what I consider to be the peak of r&b/rap music, the late 90's to early 00's. I am so inspired by these two things that often my work is a notable mixture of both.
I consider myself very lucky to have found what I want to do for the rest of my life at such a young age, but I consider myself even luckier to have so much support from people around the world. Thank you.
