Bio

Jessica Lee Ives (née Jessica Stammen) (b. 1980) received her B.F.A. from The Cooper Union School of Art and was named one of Glamour Magazine’s Top Ten College Women of 2003. Her work as an artist-in-residence at Ground Zero in New York City after September 11, 2001 earned her the Clark Foundation Fellowship with which she pursued her self-directed M.A. at New York University’s Gallatin School. Jessica also studied anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, clinical massage and movement.

Jessica explores people in motion through the natural world. Her paintings are filled with adventure, vitality, natural beauty, and wonder.

"I paint out of love — love for the world and for the human capacity to know the world through movement, recreation, and adventure. Kinesthetic intelligence and imagination are very important to me; so is the sensation of wonder. That a small movement of paint can capture a large movement of body through water, and that we can know the world’s beauty through both these actions, is astounding. It’s time we start picturing — and feeling — ourselves in the landscape more."

Jessica’s current studio is located in Camden, Maine where she and her husband, Jonathan, own and operate Making Movement, a clinical massage practice.
