This piece was inspired by an opossum that lives in a friend's backyard. I have always been attracted to opossums and the way they care for their babies. 

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.
