Springtime at the zoo is a wonderful time of year.  After a recent visit to view the new arrivals (baby giraffes) I was inspired to paint this piece.  The bright colors are full of energy and the bold lines celebrate this new beginning. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished red edges. It comes ready to hang.

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. Fun fact: Jessica recently visited the Congaree National Park, which inspired her to try a new color palette.
