Originally from Quebec, in Canada, Jessica is an artist based in Ballydesmond in the West of Ireland. Her formal training includes French literature, a degree in Textile Arts, History of art and visual arts in Canada.
Having painted in oils for many years, her current work depicts the unspoiled landscapes, the contrast in light at different times, seasons and in different weathers. Brief moments often taken just on the side of the road, captured when the light is just right.
Bold colors and contrasts, full texture and perspective are what defines Jessica’s paintings. In a process that is as much about sculpting as painting with rich oils, freely yet methodically making the colors meet or mix on the canvas. Clean and simple lines that come together for a complex harmony of color and composition.
