I got the chance to ask Jess some questions about her illustrating.
When did you first start illustrating?
I first started illustrating in college when I was majoring in Biology and using my art as a relaxing class. As college progressed I dove further and further into drawing and my love for art continued to progressinto today.
What made you decide to open an etsy store?
I opened my etsy store about a year and a half after college when my now fiance finally convinced me to sell some of my illustrations and art.
What inspires you?
Nature & using our zoo membership always inspires me and pushes me to create more.
You sell a few different types of products on your store (illustrations, map ornaments, bracelets, etc.). What is your favorite to make?
My favorite to make by far is my illustrations! I love drawing, but also love creating new items by hand!
Here are some of my favorite pieces in Jess' shop:
