THE ARTIST

         Jessica Burleson's interest in art began early on, when she won the American Visionary Award with Scholastic and was invited to an awards ceremony in New York city. Following her passion she graduated with a Bachelors in Fine Art, concentration in painting, and a Minor in Art History from the University of Tennessee. 

THE WORK

     My creations are conscious of the materiality of paint, with playful textures and intricate line work.  The delicacies in application of the medium connects you with the consumption of culture and the arts.
