About

Based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, born and raised in New Hartford, New York, Jessica is a graduate of Skidmore College (BS) and with a concentration in Studio Art. She has shown at Walter Wickiser Gallery, Sotheby’s, Yashar Gallery, LIC Arts, RH Gallery, Open Space Gallery, Spacewomb Gallery and The Delancey in NYC, Central Connecticut State University and is a part of the permanent Tang Museum Collection at Skidmore College as well as being a part of many private collections. As an intuitive abstract painter, my work explores the subconscious and is influenced and inspired by my own visual, spiritual, and emotional mental library and personal experiences, by universal human experiences and by the social, biological, natural and human made world. Metaphors and narratives within my work often reflect my unique experiences as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, fraternal twin, aunt and friend, in my career in media communications design, in my travels, and from being a long time New Yorker who also spent formative time in coastal Massachusetts and upstate New York throughout my life. Using colorful, overlapping, fluid and textural layers that incorporate painterly gestures, lines and marks, my work champions the implication of color and a love of paint as a medium. I think of painting as a metaphor for life - taking necessary risks and chances and working to make harmony from chaos. I create intuitively with gut feeling. Using strong color and energetic gestures, and incorporating various found materials in my work for added texture, interest and meaning, I await the subliminal discovery of each painting as it reveals itself to me in the process of its creation.
