Hey I’m Jess, I’m an Irish artist currently travelling while maintaining my creative practice. I began painting and drawing from a young age and went on to complete a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art in LSAD.
I’ve always been obsessed with dreams and the subconscious mind so my style of painting would relate the closest to surrealism and magical realism – it revolves around the borders between perception and actual reality.
My medium of choice is oil paints, though I do experiment with collage and other paints. I always begin my creative process with elements of my own street photography.and the human figure using a reductive painting technique to create a sense of an otherworldly place.
