A wild childhood drives her narratives. Jessica describes herself as having been raised by wolves. Much of her art takes the form of sculpture, or sculptural book-objects that frequently use doll parts, found objects and imagery and sometimes include intimate child-like texts. Her work runs the gamut from playful to devastating.
Jessica has said that the book, her favored medium, is an especially good forum for her art as books are an intimate medium by their very nature, and must be held and manipulated by the viewer. She hopes her works will be handled, even mishandled. This creates an individual experience for each person. Jessica enjoys collaborative works, installation projects and performance art as well working in the classically trained field in which she specializes.
