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, mechanisms, and alchemy. What started as a desire to understand her family's history with mental illness has manifested into a series of works.
