In other news I will be having my second solo show! I scheduled almost a year ago to display my work at our local library...and now the time has come! I had to write a press release to send to the editor of our town newspaper. Writing about myself is always a challenge...here's my attempt at making myself look good ;)
Jessica Kale is an emerging artist who has lived in West Caldwell for 10 years. She has an associate's degree in fine arts and is currently working towards her bachelor's in illustration at New Jersey City University. Jessica's passion for animals inspires all of her artwork. To create realistic and soul captivating animals Jessica specializes in a unique medium called scratchboard. A white clay tablet that is coated in black ink and etching tools that are used to create fur and eyes. Jessica recently won Honorable Mention in mixed media for her scratchboard work at the Twelfth Annual Gaelen juried art show. Her pastels have also gained attention by being accepted into the prestigious Pastel Society of America. Jessica creates artwork through the essence of animals and is honored to be showing at the West Caldwell library.
Now if I could just get those motivation juices flowing and create at least 1 more new piece to hang before Sept. 1st!
