When I started painting 15 years ago, I primarily painted cats inspired by a pair of new kittens. Currently, one of the kittens is an old, wise cat who inspires me to create forms that are contemplative and serene.
A few months after Jessica JH Roller and her husband were married, they adopted two young Siamese cats from a shelter -- Tony and Larry. Jessica quickly fell deeply in love with the kittens and says the cats changed her. "They opened my eyes - I started to notice birds, trees, water, color, everything. It was as if the artist inside had been unleashed.” Jessica uses bold colors and primitive linework to create whimsical, expressive portraits. She intends to capture real or imagined moments that are both common and extraordinary.

"Custody Battle" literally commands the room. She, they, are so intense and though provoking. I had looked at her in the gallery for what seems like forever and finally one day bought her because I knew I would be terribly disappointed if someone else snapped her up before I got off my duff. I am astounded at just how striking it is in person and that background color matches one of the predominant colors in my wood rug. Wow. Good job lady!- S Day
