I'm Jess. I'm a muralist, illustrator, animator, designer and conservation artist.
(but I also like the art of good conversation.)
I was born on land, but I feel more at home in the sea. I created Land Sea Studios in 2017 when I was living in a hut on Kauai, and since then, I've created a life that is dedicated to helping others explore our innate connection to nature, to ourselves, and to one another. In all, I create art as a token of my appreciation for life.
With hope to inspire others to explore their natural surroundings, to appreciate the beauty in all living things, and to use their voices to stand up for those who cannot speak up for themselves, I strive to illustrate the connections of the natural world.
