Hello everyone, 

I'm Jessica. I'm in my mid forties, with three grown and wonderful children, a husband who I adore, and a plethora of pets. 

Art is what I do full time. I show in galleries and museums around the world, and have an ongoing story on Patreon with my cowriter Austin Barkdull. 

I primarily work in watercolors with gemstone additions. Most of my gemstones are bought from fellow rockhounders. 

I went to an art school starting when I was six, and continued my education as an adult under the tutelage of Mike Dringenberg and Arthur Roberg... and about a jillion youtube videos.  So I'm a little bit classical eduction and a little bit self taught, it just depends on what material we're talking about.
