ABOUT THE ART
With an interior design background, Jessi loves creating custom one-of-a-kind pieces for her clients. The artist works closely with interior designers to create the perfect pieces for each project. From custom wallpaper, custom interior painting, murals, and fabric to custom paintings, the artist can create any visual elements needed to complete each project.
My life has been a form of art. My art changes with my life experiences. With a deep breath, the mountains speak. Mountains, rural landscapes and natural elements are always at the heart of what I create. Whether in the form of birds, mountains, flowers or abstract colorscapes, my work breathes, laughs, and holds love in every stroke.
