ARTIST PROFILE

About Jessica Magee

Jessica Magee was born and raised in Central Florida.  Having a Grandma who was a professional artist and sign painter, Jessica became interested in the arts at an early age.  Her Grandma taught her the basics of drawing the human form, how to use oil paints and even how to clean a paint brush. As an adolescent she would spend hours filling up sketchbooks with portraits of people she found in magazines, and in high school she took as many art electives as she could get her hands on.  It was during this time in high school that she developed a love for abstract art and color. Jessica attended the University of Florida and received a Bachelor of Design in Interior Design in 2005, and shortly afterward she moved to Denver, Colorado with her husband.  Jessica worked as a commercial interior designer for almost 10 years before becoming an architectural rep for tile and stone.  During her time as an interior designer, she painted in her free time and became interested in developing acrylic color studies using unique color combinations in flowing and organic forms.  Jessica had her first solo gallery show in 2013, and shortly thereafter received her first corporate commission with a local oil and gas firm.  In 2014 and 2017, she was accepted in to the Cherry Creek Arts Festival in Denver, and 2015 - 2017 was accepted in to the Cherry Arts Festival at the Stanley Marketplace through a blind jury process.  Before the Stanley Arts Festival, Jessica had many marketing opportunities present themselves.  She was featured in a local newspaper publication and also was the subject of a television interview on a local Denver news station.  Currently Jessica is working on a partnership with West Elm as a local artist in Denver and Boulder, and continues to produce artwork for corporate and personal collections.
