I began painting 13 years ago and painting made me realize how much I loved birds, although I never got too much into recognizing specific birds. Several years later, I named my daughter Wren, and I still didn't learn about any specific "Wren," like the Carolina Wrens that live around me. Now that my daughter is five and interested in knowledge about all sorts of animals, especially her name sake, I took note of the qualities unique to a Carolina Wren, like their upturned tail, which I included in this painting. 

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished 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.
