Jessica lives in a little oasis near downtown Atlanta where it feel like a quiet country landscape amid a bustling city. Along with her extended family, she makes her home with two rescue dogs and four rescue cats. Living with Jessica is almost like living on a farm with all of her beloved pets, except the bustle and noise of downtown Atlanta is less than five miles away.
She was born with a condition known as Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita. Due to the circumstances of her birth, she is a quadriplegic. Learning to paint and write was in her from a very young age, so she taught herself to do both with the tools utilized by her mouth rather than her hands.
Besides being an artist, she is also an author. Her publications range from historical fiction to paranormal nonfiction and poetry. She is also a pagan – a Celtic polytheist – and intuitive reader with divination tools like tarot cards and scrying mirrors. Much of her artistic endeavors reflect her spirituality as well as her love of history, almost creating a Southern Gothic aesthetic. Whether charcoal pencil, colored pencil, watercolors, or oils, Jessica has a varied approach to art.
