Lets Get to Know our members - Weekly

This week's featured artist is Jessica Cook. She is an Atlanta Based artist.

About the Artist:

She has always been intrigued and inspired by the endless varieties of human expression. Creating figurative works has helped her observe and listen closely, to move beyond first impressions and to empathize with others. Her inspiration often comes from travel or her sketches of everyday scenes.
In her still lifes, she focuses on ordinary objects—perhaps a shirt, a flower, a teapot—and using loose brushstrokes, energetic rhythms and bold color, she works to make them extraordinary and to remind herself how important these small items can be.
As she evolves as an artist, she abstracts the figure more, playing with exaggerated color and focusing on shapes and movement to capture the emotion and spirit of the person or of a particular scene. Ultimately, she wants people to be uplifted by her art or to participate in it in some way by creating their own story.

She is currently working on a new series and a commission, please go to her website for more details, work and contact details.
