Jessica is a self-taught artist, living in Berkeley Springs, with her husband and two sons. She paints on wood, using a layering process of pyrography, watercolors, and colored pencils. This layering process allows the natural beauty of the wood grain to shine through her pieces.
“Sometimes I choose the wood for a particular project and sometimes the wood chooses me and tells me what it wants. Sounds silly yes, but just ask Geppetto (Pinocchio); he would understand.”
She is an active member of both the Morgan Arts Council and the Berkeley County Arts Council. She was previously a member of the Berkeley Art Works Artists Co-Op. Her artwork has been featured in the 8th annual Art & Earth Exhibition at the Berkeley Art Works Gallery.
