Passionate about nature, wilderness, and our national parks, Jessica has served eight terms as an Artist-in-Residence for the National Park Service, including Badlands, Rocky Mountain, Joshua Tree, and the Western Arctic National Parklands, a grouping of three remote NPS units located north of the Arctic Circle and void of any roads. She has also served as AiR for the Bureau of Land Management and was the 2018 Idaho Conservation League Artist-in-Residence.
Jessica’s work has received many awards and can be found in numerous national and international private and public collections. She is a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society. Exhibition highlights include the 2013 and 2020 American Watercolor Society Annual International Exhibitions, the Flora of the National Parks exhibit at the United States Botanical Gardens in Washington, DC, and Google Cultural Institute’s “One Object” project celebrating the centennial of the National Park Service.
Working and teaching out of her studio in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Jessica offers classes and workshops for adults and youth, as well as online classes. Her work is represented by The Art Spirit Gallery.
