artist illustrator bio

Hi there!

My name is Jessica, and I’m an artist and illustrator living in Groningen, Netherlands. I create colorful artwork that is both semi-realistic and illustrative using traditional media like watercolor, colored pencils, and gouache. I specialize in portraits, but I can illustrate a variety of subjects.

I’m originally from Mexico, and I grew up in Tuxtepec, Oaxaca. After graduating from college, I became passionate about teaching English. And that’s what I did for the next few years, before falling in love with a Dutch man and moving to the Netherlands in 2015. A year later, I started my online clothing business, which promotes the work of Mexican artisans. Shortly after, I started blogging. It was then that this website was born, which has allowed me to combine three of my biggest passions: writing in English, drawing, and motivating others.

These days, I dedicate most of my time to creating art and illustrations. When I’m not making art, I am writing stories that motivate people to reach their art goals.
