Jessica Allen received her BFA in Art History from Tufts University and studied at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts. Her preferred medium is acrylics, which she often applies to plywood or illustration boards. Anything that tells a story (antiques, natural history prints, hand-lettering) inspires her. Additionally, she is intrigued by Indian and Persian art, illustrated manuscript marginalia, and textile design. All these influences can be found in Jessica's work, which displays intricate skills and a close connection to visual memory.
