About The Artist

Jessica became an artist and lover of nature at a young age. Her imagination along with her ongoing exploration of the natural world feeds her inspiration for the artwork she creates. Jessica learned the art of copper weathervanes by apprenticing in New England in the mid-1990s. Her passion for researching, sketching and building each piece of her own sculptural copper art has remained constant.

After recently studying the Foldforming technique in Calgary, AB Jessica applies it to forms on various pieces and continues to add them to select works such as, Mysterious Steed. After 15 years of copper and weathervane artistry, her signature fantasy-themed art continues to capture the attention of collectors nationwide. Jessica finds joy in working with this radiant copper metal and the process of freehand cutting, forming, and detailing to bring out its natural characteristics of warmth and light.

She designs and creates vanes for homes and businesses throughout the U.S. and sells her fine art through local and regional art galleries. Jessica stays current on innovation and collaboration within the metal sculpting community and teaches copper-work classes locally.

Jessica lives and works in a small creative community in the foothills of Northwestern Washington’s “American Alps” .
