Jessica Wright, Amarillo Member Since October 2012 Artist Statement My name is Jessica (Jessie) Wright and I am a wife, mother, artist and part time jewelry designer. My mother is an amazing artist and I have always loved watching her paint from the beginning of the painting to the finish. I have tried through the years to paint like her but never really was that interested until a few years ago. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and had to quit working as a barber full time. I began playing with beads and started creating handmade jewelry, but then I began painting and fell in love immediately. I love how painting makes me feel and especially when I am done with a piece. I will be putting many more items on here so keep checking back for more of my art and photos.
