Jessica Harris is a multimedia artist living and working in the Yarra Ranges. She approaches most mediums with enthusiasm but at the moment is fixated on collage and drawing.

The key themes of her work are exploring the human condition. The majority of her work is an emotional response to an every day event seemingly small and insignificant but at the time monumental. Looking at the emotions of relationships and dealing with the everyday trivialities is what inspires her art the most. Her work also deals with larger world wide issues that affect every one directly or indirectly.

Jessica has a certificate in Graphic Design as well as a Fine Arts Degree, Graduate Diploma of Primary School Education and a Graduate Diploma of ESL teaching. She has been teaching for 11 years , 7 of these as an Art Specialist. She currently works as a Schools Support Manager for the Hands on Learning Program with the Save the Children Foundation.

Jessica has exhibited across Australia since 2002. She always has a project on the go and likes to be involved in everything all at once!!
