Jessa’s paintings and drawings emerge from her experiences in the backcountry, blending the creation process with adventure to capture the spirit of exploration during her time outside. These adventurous artworks also serve as studies for murals, bringing backcountry adventures back to urban and daily life.
The artworks are about the human experience and temporality of wilderness. They aim to celebrate play and exploration, and these moments within the wild. These pieces explore the connectedness between all parts of the adventure – the sky, the trees, our footprints, etc – through the use of one, single, continuous line to create the foundation for each piece.
