Jessica has been interested in art since she was a child and showed a promising talent for drawing at an early age. When she was a teenager she began to paint occasionally but never imagined an art career could come to fruition.
However in 2005 she was awarded a scholarship from Scottsdale Artist’s School and took a workshop with R.A. Heichberger. Having a wide appreciation for different schools of art is what drew her to his work. His combination of impressionism, realism, and tonalism made an impact on her.
She continued to study under him and by 2007 she was able to fulfill her dream of a career in fine art.
Jessica’s inspiration is drawn from many facets of nature. It can be anything from the colors in a sunset, the brilliance of Autumn Aspen foliage against a clear blue sky, or the pattern of a stream running through fresh fallen snow. From these Jessica develops color harmonies, value structures, compositions, and designs resulting in her unique style of painting.
