Jess was born in Nebraska in 1980, and grew up on a farm until she turned 8 when her father then joined the military and they got stationed to Germany.
Growing up she always enjoyed art classes but didn’t think she could be an artist full time. She put all her focus on being a full time mom to her four kids.
Then Jess decided to pursue her art career by applying herself at the Milan Art Mastery program online in 2019-2020.
Jess had her art on display in Los Angeles when it was selected in the top 20 for the ArtxFreedom contest bringing awareness to anti trafficking.
Starting in January 2021 she did a 100 day challenge where she created everyday for 100 days and posted articles for awareness on human exploitation.
Jess participated in the EuropArtFair in Amsterdam in July 2021.
Jess was commissioned to do a mural for the Tour Elentric in Dendermonde Belgium. And has now done 3 murals at the Nato base near Mons, Belgium.
