Hi! My name is Jess and I am super inconsistent at posting on instagram. A friend has inspired me to post little stories on her more often, and I know a long time ago I said I would. But then I never did... I actually stopped posting all together. So here’s me trying to hold myself accountable. I want to build a more inclusive and connected little art community here.. and I’m going to try to share more personal stories and old art and post even if I’m not constantly churning out new content. Because.. that’s not realistic to be constantly putting out new things! So I hope to connect and reach more people and be more open and vulnerable here. Yes this is an art account, but can’t it be so much more? Art is political, art is vulnerable, art is connection, it’s an extension of us, and I’m here to create a little community. ✨And I’m going to start this off with an introduction post since it has been soooo long! And so many new faces! As you know, my name is Jess, and I’m sure you also know that I have a little deaf cattle dog named Tanana! I am a 25 year old queer/bi gal living in a little green house Boise, Idaho; and my pronouns are she/they. 😌 I am a gardener as my day job- I call it baby landscaping. I also have way too many houseplants- so you’ll often find posts about my garden and houseplants here. l love to hike and backpack with my partner(who shares a name with me 😉) and my pup on our days off. I’m from Buffalo, New York and I’ve lived everywhere, from Wyoming, to Alaska, to Arizona... the list goes on. I drink coffee everyday- even if nitro cold brew gives me anxiety. I’ve been creating and painting my whole life! And... #fucktrump + #wearyourdamnmask✨Lately my main goal is to make art more accessible. I really want to create a community where we uplift each other, share tips instead of gatekeep, encourage others to create, and make art affordable while also not selling ourselves short. I hope this year is filled with these intentions. I also love the friendships I’ve made from this art corner of instagram and really hope to connect more. ✨With that said... who are you?! Post something about you, say hi, let's connect!
