My Story

Hey! My name is Jessica. I’m a visual artist, writer, and researcher.



I’m also a professor who teaches graduate courses in Philosophy, Art History, and Cultural Studies.

My scholarly research is on virtual reality and understanding authenticity in the digital world. You can see my paintings here and my dissertation here.

Further, I privately teach, mentor, and work with creative thinkers.

I believe creativity and the use of imagination are strong forces with which to be reckoned.

I help artists and writers gain clarity, focus on their writing, and complete their projects. I believe every creative individual has a unique story or information that can inspire and help others.

I have earned my BFA and MFA degrees in Painting—and my PhD in Art Theory, Philosophy, and Aesthetics.  I have 4 children, and I’m married to an amazing man. I love traveling, being near water, painting, music, and writing.

I love to see people succeed.

So, get comfortable, check it all out–and welcome!
