About the Artist
A real "Jill" of all trades, Jessica is a self taught artist from Houston, Texas that is proficient in all types of mediums. With anything from graphite pencil to acrylic paint and, yes, even digital sketching, she aims to create a wide variety of artwork that appeals to almost anyone. Although, being a real geek at heart, she finds her craft most enjoyable when she's painting video game references and fan art.
Taken from her high school anime days, her work has a slight mix of a modern Japanese cartoon style with a traditional American comic book feel. Bright colors and bold outlines are typical in her paintings.
She's a full-time instructor at a few of the Painting With a Twist locations in North Houston and thoroughly enjoys providing a sense of creativity to just about anyone that walks in through the doors. With her in-depth instructions, you're bound to walk out with a piece of artwork that even your loved ones will be proud you did. When she's not teaching classes, she enjoys showcasing at underground art shows where she spends time meeting other artists in the area and connecting with fellow art enthusiasts.
Her main influences are her artistic friends and fellow geeks as well as her loving parents, Sheryl and Larry, that have shown nothing but full support and praise.
