I originally picked up hand embroidery as a hobby during maternity leave in 2015. Prior to becoming a mother, I worked in a fermentation laboratory as a research associate and saved my true passion, art, for the weekends. After surviving the newborn phase, I realized that my hands had become restless and I needed to feed my creative spirit. I thought my old paintings and drawings would translate well to embroidery design, without the mess of traditional art supplies. This new medium proved affordable, portable, and easy to toss aside when faced with a toddler emergency.

Thanks to the encouragement of wonderful and supportive friends on social media, I began to sell my original designs as patterns and kits. I’ve also had the opportunity to teach in person at workshops and online through platforms such as YouTube and Bluprint. Sharing my experience has been an amazing gift. My goal is for my students to find the same joy and relaxation that I find when I am creating art through hand embroidery. I also hope that they have a lot of fun.

In Animal Embroidery Workbook, Jessica enlivens the craft of embroidery with whimsy and fun, using her skill as an artist to bring a variety of critters to life. Jessica's projects are endearing, her instructions are easy to follow, and her joy in stitching is infectious. A fabulous book for beginners and beyond who want to play with contemporary embroidery.
