Atlanta, Georgia, United States
Jessica discovered her creative side when she was decorating her home. She wanted art pieces that no one else had and decided to create her own pieces. Her first exhibition was at The Next Cool Event held in Atlanta, GA. Event participates selected a muse and create a three dimensional set based on a movie, commercial or television show. Her muse was Sanford and Son. She used old car rims for the coffee table, old beer kegs as side tables, aluminum as a chandelier, cams and a fly wheel as a side table, pvc pipe as a television console, and the walls were constructed of metal studs, gutter guard and corrugated metal.
Since the event Jessica has focused her energies on creating unique light fixtures, art and accessories for commercial and residential clients.
Jessica received a full track and field scholarship from Johnson C. Smith University where she received her degree in Business Administration. Jessica also have a MBA from Strayer University and currently resides in Lawrenceville, GA.
