MY NAME IS JESS
I am an artist living ocean side in Boyne Island, Queensland with my husband, Joel and our two boys, Lucas and Michael. Painting for me is a very therapeutic process. I use art as a positive outlet, loosing myself in music and a mess of paint and imagination. Centering myself in my little home studio with nothing more than my canvas and paints to create works that project emotion and heighten the senses of the viewer (and myself).
For as long as I remember, I have always enjoyed making things and working with my hands. I mainly work in Acrylic and Oil but enjoy creating a little bit of everything from making pottery to creating online art classes. I also share my love for art with my community through Paint & Sip events, where I teach others how to paint their very own artwork. Theres something so special about holding space for people to create memories with friends/family and express themselves through creativity.
When I am not working in my studio, my family and I are at the beach soaking up the sun and the salty air, on the motorbikes or travelling. You can also find us snuggled up with our pup, Layla, reading or binging our latest TV shows.
Outside of painting, I’m lucky enough to have done a degree in psychology and behavioural science which has supported me in co-founding and managing a local psychology practice.
I am self represented and sell my work online and ship directly from my studio in Boyne Island. You can also find my work at CQ Psych Services, The Little Bloom Room, and The Junction Café. I also offer wholesale for retail shops.
