more about our current artists
My name is Jessie and I am an oil painter. I studied Fine Art at the College of Visual Arts on Summit Ave in 2006, and I’ve been committed to my work as an artist ever since. I currently live in St. Paul and it feels like home.
I paint anything and everything, but I love to paint dogs and cats! I honor and immortalize your four-legged companions by capturing their essence in a portrait that you will be sure to treasure for life.

My unique jewelry has simple elegance that reflects the chemistry between inherent beauty of a women and the piece she wears.
I first made jewelry in high school art class and was captivated.
Today the freshwater and Tahitian pears that I select every year are exceptional; breathtaking luster, superior quality, and distinctive shapes. Most of my pearls are from China since the pearl farmers there produce the finest quality in the current market. I am drawn to the unusual shapes of kasha pearls, baroque pearls and coin pearls, which lend to both casual and dressy attire.
The luster of pearls continues to amaze me as they capture light and change instantly depending on a women’s skin tone or attire which brings individuality to each piece of jewelry.
