Jessica is an interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago. She received her BFA through the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) with a concentration in studio. Her current focus for her making centers around escapism, mental illness, coping mechanisms, permanence, and memory. She's working in multiple realms such as musical composition, scent association, light, space and metal work. What started as a desire to understand her family's history with mental illness has manifested into a series of works.
She’s currently working on various shows in the city - primarily located at the Annoyance Theatre & Bar. Along with stage managing - she has dabbled in directing, lighting/set/sound design and back of house operations. She’s regularly in search for new projects and new learning experiences.
