Jessica Lawrence (Garrett) was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1983. She has been focused on art since she was a child and showed a promising talent for drawing
at an early age.
In 2005 she was awarded a scholarship from Scottsdale Artists' School and took a workshop with R. A. Heichberger. She continued to
study under him and by 2007 she was able to have a career in fine art. She has also taken workshops from Chris Saper, Kevin Macpherson,
and most recently Tim Deibler.
Jessica enjoys creating oil paintings that convey the feeling of the landscape through traditional representation. "I have always been drawn to painting the landscape. There is a certain serenity and beauty that nature presents, and I enjoy trying to capture that."
Jessica's passion for her art clearly shows in her work. "I like to paint lighting situations that push for nature's more vibrant colors. I think as an artist, color is the most powerful means of expression available. I am greatly influenced by Emile Gruppe's thoughts on color, and it is my goal to understand it as he did. Luckily, ever changing light produces limitless subtleties in color making the learning process never-ending."
