In Jessica's Words:

When bird watching, nature walks and hugs with furry animals collided with paper tearing, texture doodling, graphite smudges and ink mixing, I knew I'd found my happy place.   


After completing a BFA in Print Media from the Alberta College of Art & Design, I moved to the mountains of British Columbia to pursue my dream of becoming a practicing visual artist; the "nature's my friend" studio was born.  Happily nestled in a sun-filled art studio amongst the beautiful Kootenay Mountains next to the Columbia River, the inspiration behind all of my creative endeavors is literally at my fingertips each and every day.
