ABOUT JESSICA

Jessica is an interdisciplinary artist in Upstate New York. Currently, she is working primarily in mixed media assemblage and digital photography, and is occasionally sidetracked by special projects.

Her assemblage work is quirky and whimsical, focusing on ancient Egyptian iconography, such as birds of prey or obscure folk heroines or deities, reaching to make a commentary on modern/not-so-modern issues like betrayal, revenge, politics, and the deaths of people or relationships.

Jessica's photography peeks into abandoned properties at typically undisclosed locations, exploiting their forlorn disintegration. She is particularly taken by the details of bright artifacts found in scenes near home or far away. Jessica continues to work on her NORAD Z-50 series, based on her visits to an abandoned radar base. Saratoga Arts made this body of work possible with a Community Arts Grant funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and The New York State Legislature.

Presently, Jess continues to work on paper, canvas, wood and digitally while she builds a studio. She is returning to linocut printmaking and casting 3D works from molds. Jess is scheduling opportunities to create public art and beautify communities.
