Biography

Jess creates her art to not only produce images for the public to view but also to make them aware how beautiful animals and nature are. Over the years, Jess has worked with various wildlife charities such as Born Free & Explorer’s Against Extinction to raise thousands of pounds which go towards protecting the animals that she is so inspired by and give something back to the planet.

inspiration

Jess’ main inspiration is animals as she grew up loving nothing more than drawing and being outside in nature. At a young age she naturally coined the two and hasn’t looked back since. There is such a vast variety of life on the planet that Jess feels she’s only just scratched the surface of, so with countless species out there it’s difficult to not be inspired.

medium

Jess’ medium of choice is the pencil. This has been looked down on as a medium by art critiques for many years as they prefer oils or watercolours but the pencil is now coming into its own with more and more artists regularly using it. Jess hopes that through her work, she can promote this form of artwork to others and continue to make the pencil a more accepted medium among the art world.

As Jess mostly draws animals, this usually means a fine point is needed so with careful precision and lots of sharpening, layers upon layers of fine strokes are added to the paper to create the image of an animal for all to see.
