Using just a dash of red, I wanted to capture the essence of a field on a bright sunny day. The moles, foxes, mice, groundhogs and snakes are snug in their burrows below cone flowers and other flora, goldfinches and deer. Mirroring the images from top-to-bottom and side-to-side was inspired by the elements used in textiles and tapestries.

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.
