The joy of childhood, and the special baby bonding moments and the moments of joy between moms and young children are powerful, wonderful, and fleeting. My mission is to capture this time in a beautiful portrait painting that will brighten your home and bring you joy on an ongoing basis.

“Jessie captured a very special and tender moment in my daughter’s and my life. She paints with sensitivity and warmth. She also painted the background beautifully with the water and trees. I highly recommend her artwork and will treasure her painting for the rest of my life.”   Thank you sincerely,
