Jessie Fries isa self-taught artist, drawn to nature and simple rural, everyday surroundings. Her subject matter is often flowers, birds, sunsets, starry filled moonlit skies or the sea. She is attracted to these things because it expresses the wonder she feels in very existence.
In her paintings and drawings she blends bold colorful acrylics and mixed media to create texture and form as well as using warm earthly hues to create an inviting palette. Her philosophy is that art provides her with an aesthetic appreciation for the world, hoping to capture a bit of beauty and tell a story in her work.
