Jessica was born in Grand Junction, Colorado in May 1976 and grew up just west in the small town of Fruita. Always having an interest in the arts, theatre and writing in particular, her passion for fine art developed much later in life. As a graduate of Colorado Technical University with Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting, she believed her career was going to be one of business and finance; however life has a way of moving unexpectedly. Following a Pen and Ink class at the Veteran’s Art Center in Grand Junction, she was quickly entranced by the pouring out of ink on the page. This quickly developed into a greater participation at the Veteran’s Art Center where she has participated in several exhibits, winning people’s choice awards in best Military Family Art and Drawing categories. You can find her work on display and for sale at Seeds of Revolution, located on Main St Grand Junction. Other exhibits include the Artists Haven where she is currently teaching classes in the Zentangle method. Jessica received her Certified Zentangle Teacher certification in April 2015.
