Introducing one of our secret marketeers: Jessica Bleasby
Jessica is already a renowned national artist with strong Berkshire connections. She cemented her prestige with a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art from the Winchester School of Art.
Her work is described as “uplifting & bringing a sense of joy” by the critics, celebrating the visual power of light and illumination within objects and abstract scenes.

The use of realism and abstraction in her work demonstrates a unique skill rarely found in today’s art market.
Her works are shown in numerous prestigious galleries and exhibitions around the country.
Jessica says about her work:
I am currently creating paintings that explore vibrant and uplifting colour combinations. I draw a lot of inspiration from the incredible colours, patterns and depth that can be found in natural scenes and landscapes.
Power Of The Sun, Diptych, 61 x 70cm, oil, glitter, spray paint and gloss on canvas. £300
My paintings are often made by building up different layers of paint. Sometimes the paint is poured creating swirls and marbled patterns. I also use a pallet knife to drag and manipulate thick paint over the canvas. This creates great textures and blending effects. Often once under layers have dried I will decide to add realist details, fine glitter or spray paint or a high gloss finish to get the effect that I want.
Canary Stalactites, 30 x 30cm, Oil, glitter and gloss on canvas. £ 250
I like to think of my work as being multi faceted and layered just as is the human mind when combined with visual perception and emotional experience. I am inspired by natural elements such as flowers, water, rocks, insects and whether as a subject used to express my own feelings and experiences.
