Jessica Garrett 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 Jessica Garrett 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.
Jessica Garrett continued to study under him and by 2007 she was able to fulfill her dream of a career in fine art.
Jessica Garrett enjoys creating oil paintings that convey the feeling of the landscape through traditional representation. Her 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 Garrett develops color harmonies, value structures, compositions, and designs resulting in her unique style of painting.
Jessica is always evolving as an artist. She has taken workshops from Chris Saper, Kevin Macpherson, and, most recently, Tim Deibler. Since 2009, she has participated in the Buffalo Bill Art Show and Sale, and in 2013, she began participating in Cowgirl Up.
