A bit about moi
Jess is an artist and creative working out of her studio in Austin, Texas. You can find her art in Crate + Barrel, West Elm, Pottery Barn and in many online and local shops throughout the U.S.
Jess has been painting for as long as she can remember with one simple mission: to make beautiful work that makes people feel extraordinary. Her aesthetic is influenced by her African upbringing - simple lines, color and shape to capture the life in every form.
Jess does illustration for kids, businesses and brands. She works in wobbly lines from a quill dipped in her Grandfather's vintage pot of India Ink, and in colorful watercolor washes. Her characters elicit a sense of wonder and adventure, with just a hint of mischief.
BUSINESS + BrandS
Jess spent the first decade of her career doing brand strategy and marketing for global businesses and corporations. She's had the opportunity to work at a start-up, creative advertising agencies and global marketing at a Fortune 500 company.
LET’S WORK TOGETHER
Now, she's an independent creative in Austin, Texas and gets to blend her knowledge of the business with her love for all things illustrious.
A Bit MORE ABOUT MOI
Jess started a YouTube channel when she quit her corporate job and set off into the great unknown that is “being an artist.” If you want to get a dose of her moxie and some dramatic hand gestures, this is a good place to start.
