Jessica Gordon Jessica A. Gordon (b.1978) was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. Showing great potential as a child and being awarded drawing classes at the Cincinnati Art Academy, Jessica went on to receive an associates degree in Commerical Art from Antonelli Art College. Jessica worked in the graphic arts until moving to Hawaii to be with her husband in the Navy. Being surrounded by so much beauty, Jessica found herself longing for a creative outlet. Picking up a paintbrush for the first time, Jessica fell instantly in love with the idea of creating something completely her own. Thus began her passion for painting. Jessica prefers to use oil paints on smooth surfaces that enhance the presence of her detailed works. Gordon’s process begins by gathering reference photos and has been known to stop potential models on the street. Photographing them herself ensures full creation by the artist before painting begins; and painting them she does, recently winning several awards for her mindful works. Emerging strong with accolades from North Carolina’s finest leading artists. Including Lee Baumgarten, former professor of the prestigious Columbus College Art and Design and Director of the Pineville CAC. Gordon has received two Best of Show and three First Place awards since entering her first show last year. Appreciative of the merited paintings she has created, Gordon looks forward to developing an insightful and continuously growing fine art career. Sharing her thought-provoking works has become a passion that burns within her. “Over the years, art has become a good friend to me. A way of expression, exploration, and a way of escape in the most wonderful sense; I find every moment to create very precious.” A long career ahead of this young artist, Jessica Gordon is eager and well prepared to share her beloved paintings to those that will hear her story.
