Hi there! My name is Jessica. I've always love to draw, doodle, paint and create art. When I was a child, I would draw while watching my favorite Disney movies and I dreamed of one day working in art and animation.
I married fairly early and became a dedicated military wife and mother. My husband and I were surprised with not one, but TWO sets of TWINS! I suddenly found myself with a lot of free time as I was a stay-at-home mom of four. The need to do something more and the need to work was a driving force within me.
In 2009, I discovered digital art and I became obsessed. I spent all of my spare time learning and teaching myself how to create art on my computer. I created what was then Jessica's Doodles and began to sell my clipart online.
Once my children were old enough to start school, I decided to use the extra time and get a degree in Graphic Design. I also spent the time creating more clip art. Today, I have over a thousand clip art collections available.
My style of art lends to the very cute, bright, cheerful and fun. I always hope my art brings a smile to a face, lightens the heart and is enjoyable. I prefer to create for the children's market and my illustrations are created with joy in mind.
Every day I work hard, but I simply enjoy what I do. I brainstorm for new ideas, watch tutorials to learn new techniques and endeavor every single day to be original, be unique and just.... CREATE.
When I'm not making a mess of the kitchen table with my art supplies, I enjoy time spent with my family. We love to cook, go bowling, travel, visit the beach or exercise together. I love fitness, lifting weights and running. My family and I frequently enter various races around Virginia Beach.
I am completely addicted to coffee. I can drink it any time of the day and am admittedly cranky if I don't get it. I'm also perfectly ok with being a homebody, and while I love a good party and people, I easily entertain myself with art, books or movies. I love my quiet time!
Thanks for being interested to learn a little bit about me!
