Intro
Jessica trained in jewellery and enamel at Central School of Art, London. After graduation, she established a studio in Bristol, England, and now divides her time between studio practice and teaching. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
Building on her training in traditional enamelling techniques Jessica has developed a more unconventional approach to enamel which is underpinned by ongoing research into mark making techniques. This approach, combined with investigations into printmaking techniques for enamel, formed the focus of her postgraduate study at UWE, Bristol, UK. In 2010 Jessica completed a three-year AHRC Fellowship in the Creative and Performing Arts based at the University of the West of England. The focus of the fellowship, entitled Innovation in Vitreous Enamel Surfaces in Jewellery, was the place of enamel within contemporary jewellery practice.
