Jess is an artist and carpenter based in Moab, UT. Intaglio printmaking and related work (press-building, paper-making, making frames, etc) has been her focus for the past couple of years. Studying art history and historic methods of illustration got her interested in trying these methods for herself, especially the history of reproductions or "mass-produced" images. She is always interested to see how people have leveraged local, available tools and materials to create or modify techniques and styles in art. Jess likes to think she is continuing in that tradition by learning the old techniques and finding ways to incorporate the tools and materials that she has available as a modern artist on a budget.
