I am a seeker, a traveler and a collector of moments. Some might call it wanderlust. I feel my best and at my happiest when I am creating something. My approach to each subject is rooted in respect and curiosity, composing images that ideally evoke a twinge of nostalgia and real emotion. My intention is to invite the viewer to step inside a piece of artwork and find themselves absorbed into a different place or time. My hope is that presenting my art at a large scale encourages that sense of immersion.
I move through life as an organic observer — even a good listener — but sometimes the words won't come. This work, however, lets me fill the void. Art can be subjective, and my goal is to inspire people to escape someplace familiar or new, recall where they’ve been or where they hope to go — to indulge in a moment of wanderlust and discovery of the self. I hope this work connects in some way with those who view it.
I'm grateful to those who accept the invitation. — Jessie

Print Info & Framing Recommendations
As of May 2020, all of my fine art prints come unframed, and they are printed on archivable paper with a matte finish . The smaller sizes can be easier to find standard size frames (8x10, 11x14, 16x20). Larger prints 18x24 and up, I can advise with custom framing, please inquire within. Below are samples of different sizing in frames and the extra large print was custom framed locally, please inquire, I can assist you if you are local only.
I also recommend getting your image from me first, then taking it to a framer, or using one of the following online places: like Framebridge, Artifact Uprising and Simply Framed. They are great online resources and you can customize with mattes, frames and sizes. I am not affiliated with these companies, they are simply a recommendation since many people ask me about framing.
Every Print is a custom printed to order, inspected and then signed by artist. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. No returns or refunds once your order has been printed and shipped. If you would like your print custom framed, please let me know when you check out and I will contact you directly about timeline and delivery. Thank you so much.
