“I had the pleasure of serving as Jessica's instructor for a foundation level digital art course in the LSU School of Art. Jessica is one of the most naturally gifted students I have had the pleasure of teaching. Jessica is artistically gifted and possesses the drive to perfect her skills at a high level of development. I cannot endorse a student any more than I can Jessica. Given the opportunity, she will do great things in the future.”
