Born and raised in Visalia, California, Jessica Robles studied fine art at the College of the Sequoias. She then went on to receive her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and her MFA from Northern Illinois University, both with an emphasis in printmaking. She is now an adjunct art instructor at the College of the Sequoias and teaches printmaking at California State University, Fresno.
Jessica’s work is a compilation of thoughts, ideas, memories and meaningful objects that she holds on to and brings to life in her prints and drawings. The work often hints at a sense of wit, sensitivity and sometimes an overbearing sadness which in the end creates a beautifully haunting image.
