Jess Nelson is a multi-faceted artist from Jackson Hole, WY. She spends most of her time gaining inspiration in the Teton mountains, where she calls home. Her art includes hand painted acrylic designs on local wildlife skulls and digital art available as NFTs and prints.
Jess’s skull art has been featured locally, in Alpine Fine Art Gallery and her digital art can be found and purchased on the popular NFT platform, OpenSea.
The artist’s connection to art can be traced back to her childhood, but her talents were later re-discovered after experiencing a spiritual epiphany. It was divine intervention that led her to seek the arts as a profession and leave her college degree behind. She now values the solitude she has found through her work and finds that with each piece, another part of her has healed. Ex-pressing her journey through her art, she hopes to represent a truth we all seek that has been lost in a superficial world
“This piece is a representation of consumer culture. Particularly, the consumption of medications prescribed that inhibits us of our natural creativity. Through art and freedom of expression we are able to conceptualize and feel the emotions necessary that inspire us to create. The free mind is valued above all by the artist and should be celebrated through their work”.
