Jessie has always had a passion for art and teaching. From fiber art to painting to weaving, she enjoys exploring different mediums and reimagining classic techniques. Jessie earned her Bachelor’s degree from The University of Alabama and received an Associate’s degree in Graphic Design from Pratt University in New York City. After relocating from the New York area to Charlotte in 2017, Jessie taught pre-school and loved to find new ways to bring art into the curriculum.
Jessie believes art should be an avenue where kids can explore and create in their own unique way. She thinks every child can be an artist and is excited to bring this belief to the Small Hands Big Art studio.
Outside of the studio, Jessie loves to quilt, bake bread, and spend time with her 5 (!) kids, husband and goofy, yellow lab Gumbo.
