Jess Polk is inspired by all things nature, magic, fantasy, and myth. Combining these things with animals and the human figure, she strives to create unique and beauitful images. Mostly working in oil and acrylic paint, she has learned to enjoy the process of learning with each new piece.

When she is not painting she enjoys practicing yoga, hiking, hula hooping, listening to music and spending time with her cat Rosie.

She graduated with a BFA in Illustration from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia where she still resides.
