This painting is inspired by a trip to Cumberland Island several years ago. The island is uninhabited wilderness off the coast of southern Georgia. Visiting this destination was a visual adventure. Crabs, shells, and washed up jellyfish covered the coastline and wild horses, armadillos, and alligators graced the inland, covered in twisty live oaks.

Getting to Know Jessica JH

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.
