Jessica is a painter and gardener. Her art and horticulture are both fed by a searching curiosity and a love of colour. Her practice is an exploration of traditional oil painting techniques, and the symbolism and romance of flowers.
Growing flowers in her garden in the Blue Mountains, and painting them from careful observation, ‘from life’ (without the use of photographs) her daily painting has become part of a ritual of living close to nature.
She is a past scholarship student of the Julian Ashton Art School and paints in her home studio in Blackheath, Australia.
