Jessie is a self taught artist living in Christchurch. She has always been active in artistic endeavours, from mixed media craftworks, furniture transformations, mixed media canvas work and has recently discovered the addictive and therapeutic nature of poured acrylics and the lush gloss of resin. Therapeutic due to her discovering this art form whilst recovering from a serious accident, which left her with a moderate TBI. Every painting is a joyous adventure into the 'land of' freedom and release of total control!
Each piece almost intuitively evolves into a planetary of galactic scene, whereby one can 'see' al lmanner of creation streched out before them. The use of metallic and iridescent paints creates beautiful colour palettes that change and shift as they come to life under resin, particularly when under accent lighting or where the sunlight can dance across the surface.
Jessie has exhibited in national artshowsin New Zealand and has sold her work into homes and collections both nationally and overseas.
