Jessica Guptill, Charlotte NC Member Since November 2009 Artist Statement I have been drawing as long as I remember, and painting since 2004. I started with some acrylics, working on a shower curtain on the floor to keep paint out of the carpet. I moved from there to a cramped desk, and as a I moved to better work spaces, my art improved. Nowadays I work on a drafting table in a shared studio. Always listening to music when I create, I take a lot of my inspiration from music and the world out my window.
