Jessica Jeffery has loved the arts as long as she can remember. In her younger years she primarily enjoyed portraiture in addition to pencil drawing and photography. Thanks to a thoughtful gift from her husband, she began painting nearly 10 years ago and has never looked back. She prefers working with oil paints, but likes experimenting with different mediums. She enjoys depicting a variety of subject matter, but perhaps her love of Italy has influenced her work most. Jessica’s other interests include Bible study, travel, running and other outdoor activities, as well as playing with her two devoted cocker-spaniels.
