  • Jessica attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. After years focused on designing clothes for people, she realized her strength was in drawing and painting art inspired by fashion and her creator, God. When her parents, artists themselves, opened a new church Jessica painted a picture of an angel to be hung in the sanctuary.  One angel inspired her entire new collection, a series of paintings inspired by Jesus and angels. Her goal is to bring people closer to God through her art, to uplift and for God to speak through her art. She resides in Brooklyn with her son Peace and loving husband.
