Hi, I'm Jess!

I'm an artist, fabric + surface pattern designer, author, online educator, and mama.

Every day is an opportunity to create something beautiful + true.

I make art because I feel better when I do. The art I create and the classes I teach are intended to help you help yourself feel better, too.

Life can be messy. Sometimes it's beautiful, occasionally it's heartbreaking, and usually it's just straight-up wacky and complex. Making personal + meaningful art helps you process it all and smooths out the rough edges. It helps you remember who you really are underneath it all. 

You start to:

  • Notice more beauty, even when things feel like they're a mess.
  • Doubt yourself less and trust yourself more.
  • Understand that you matter, just like everyone else.
  • See the real you, and you let her out. And, you like her!
  • Live the life you're truly meant to live, bit by bit.

I want that for you. YOU want that for you. Grab my hand and I'll show you the way!


This 16-page guide will show you the incredible impact art-making can have on your well-being. Dive into the world of Art For Self-Care and learn how to begin your own practice with ease (even if you've never considered yourself an artist!).
