Jessica Nash is a K-12 art teacher as well as a practicing artist, her preferred mediums are oil and acrylic paint, but often are created in combination with watercolor, pastel, collage paper, and other mixed media. Her works are introspective, a way to meditate on the human experience in nature. The layered sections of landscapes and biological forms examine the parallels that exist between macro and micro existence in nature. She aims to reflect growth, through root like forms, such as bodies “planted” in a composition, or an abstracted landscape with light translating the atmosphere or feel of the space.
