Jessica produces amazing shapes and forms with a contemporary feel. She has taught these skills at the Swedish Royal Academy of Visual Arts.
Together with other artists and kraft designers, Jessica cofunded " Not Quite". An association whom with its studios, workshops and exhibitions provides a place for artistic and cultural development. She can often be found in Not Quite´s forge and metal workshop gouging shapes in whatever metal she may find most suitable for the desired expression.
Her artwork is with a strong feministic touch. Women through history is an important issue for her. She studies the unfair conditions for women in the world, then
the drawings are sketshed in charcoal and enlrged, to finally be translated in to forged steel portraits. Very interesting approach to the metal and iron portraits she weld and forge in the studio.
