Jessie is a self taught artist and was born in Germany in 1976. Since 1996 she lives in Portugal.Jessies Artwork could best be described as colorful and playful. At first glance childlike simple, yet very complex and with a deep meaning. The many layers of acrylicpaint and oilpastels, as well as the many details in her work, build a contrast to the simple and almost innocent figures she is using. The intense eyes of these figures pull the observer right into the painting and into a world of whimsical magic. Jessie loves to melt contrasts together untill they add up to zero such as sweet, yet shocking. Whimsical, yet magical. Complex, yet simple. Smooth, yet porous. Soothing,yet dramatic.
