Someone once asked me to draw people in my art, and while I don't like to because I prefer little furry or buggy creatures, I did give it a go. This is the result. I wanted the people to be in a world unknown to them and that would keep them close in a weird place. Just like people, we traverse a world that we don't fully understand. Hopefully despite the strange and unknown we have one another to hold hands and make it through this big world of ours.
Well, I’m Jessica Stepp. I'm a philosopher by degree, but artist and poet by heart. I'm passionate about nature, which influences my art greatly, even if it is mostly surreal and fantasy. I grew up in the Midwest and love what it has to offer in way of natural beauty. Hiking and wandering the land is a way that I get inspired to draw. I also let my mind wander and whatever it creates I put to paper. I'm a quiet person and very thoughtful so I think about what I do in art and how others take it. I want the viewer to enjoy it as much as I do in creating it. Being quiet and shy is a hardship for an artist though. It makes for putting your art out there rough. I have a wonderful family who pushed me to get my art out and to not be afraid of what others say.
