View All Art Works By Jessie Foakes
Self-appointed ‘not your typical Essex girl’, Jessie Foakes, only recently swapped her unconventional life of travelling the world in her van, to delving into the realm of fine art. Working previously as a tattoo artist, it is only recently that Jessie has had time to pick her brushes back up and reignite her creative passion. Constantly challenging herself, she continues to evolve her creative practice on a daily basis, experimenting with new characters, colours and themes.
In her own words, she says ‘I’m used to working in a kind of here and there style, and I guess that’s how I paint. I love working with something super obvious and changing it into how I see it... a change here and there... see how we go. I use anything to paint with, rulers seem to be a go to at the moment but just anything I can get my hands onto really, snapped bits of wood, palette knifes, pens, spray paint.’
