“Born in 1987, I spent my early years letting imagination run free; playing dress up and building fairy huts under the fruit orchards in the backyard. My earliest memory is with a pencil in my hand, drawing. My identity has always been as an artist. I received my Master of Fine Arts from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2014. Since then I have been painting, curating and teaching. I am most inspired to capture portraits of humans and how we relate to the natural world around us. I strive to capture the energy in us that is so unique to each individual, but also universal; the elegant spark that unites all living things.” –Jessica Libor
