Albino Llama: Llamas are awesome! (83)
My Bio

Hello my name is Jessica, I am a Freelance Illustrator and Teaching Artist. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. I am originally from Connecticut or the Greater New York area. And, spent most teenage and college years living in New England. I currently live in Huntsville, AL with my wonderful fiance who is also an artist and very loving Great Pyrenees named Akamaru.

I am a very active artist as this is my full time job. I am a solopenuer! I have a physical studio at a location called Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment. They are the largest privately owned art co-op in the South United States, it is basically a mall full of artists! Within my studio I create new work, teach personalized one on one art lessons, consult for commissions and sell my artwork.

I also show my work in galleries throughout North Alabama and I set up at comic and anime conventions as well as art festivals throughout the South. I have also run my very own artist market that went on every Saturday for a year until the pandemic happened.

Outside of being an Illustrator I am also a Teaching Artist. I am contracted/ I work residencies for The Huntsville Museum of Art as well as North Alabama Arts Education Collaborative. I have taught all age groups from Kindergarten all the way on up to adults all different kinds of art forms such as: sculpting, jewelry making, comic books, anime, figure drawing, pastels, graphite and more! I teach private art lessons in my studio as well as on Zoom. And, I run a free art club known as Junior Illustrator's Guild for preteens and teenagers. We meet on Zoom once a week and have a Discord Server where we post our artwork, socialize and participate in art prompts and challenges. I am also a member of The Alabama Chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art.

My passion is for storytelling. You'll find that each of my illustrations has some kind of story behind it. Sometimes I ask others to interpret the story themselves. Sometimes I have a specific story to tell. I enjoy bright and very vibrant colors in my work pushed with contrast. My preferred medium is markers. I love just about any ink based mediums and will mix different kinds of ink into my work for different effects.

One last note! I have been a Deviant since I was 12 years old! I have other Deviant Art profiles that exist from different parts in my life! This is my newest profile showcasing my work as a professional in the field.
