Jessica Keller is an award winning, self-taught artist. She was born in Fresno, California, and has made Northern California, Southern California and Alaska her home until moving back to Fresno in 1998.

Her interest in painting began as a child. She works in acrylic and oil paint and her subjects range from portraits to floral and nature to colorful landscapes.

In 2010, Jessica picked up her paint brush again after not painting for 5 years. During this time she dabbled in photography and enjoyed the artistic process of taking pictures. Jessica began painting once again with a renewed vision and fire. Her newest paintings are taken from those photographs she took during her photography exploration. She continues to pursue photography as a passionate pastime but painting is still her true love.

 "Art is my passion because it stimulates my appreciation of life itself. For everything I see, hear and touch is Art.  And in some form or another it can be expressed as such through the artist.  Art soothes my soul it ignites my wonder and awe."
Kevin Mintern - Gouache Artist
 "Art is my passion because I believe it's the most effective way of expressing your innermost thoughts and feelings."
