Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Jessica Stewart

Melbourne based artist Jessica Stewart likes to draw portraits of dreamers and lovers. Using pencil, paint and pastel she draws ships, homes, animals among all other sorts of symbolic objects to represent a bond, a freedom or maybe an escape from their current situation.

Growing up on the coast before relocating to Melbourne, its fair to say nautical influences hold strong in her concepts and final pieces.

Jessica was a finalist in BSG’s 2010 $10,000 Art Prize and also had a very successful group show at BSG earlier that year called Ladies’ First which many well known and upcoming female artists participated in.

“If each piece can bring just a moment of curiosity or imagination out of the viewer then its all worth it. I love when people can relate to the portraits, seeing some sort of glimmer that they may of forgotten was within themselves.”

Jessica Stewart
