JESSICA TURTLE


Jessica actively records small details, textures, colors, moods and random bits of conversation; the collection of observations are what inform her assembled compositions. 

Attracted to those who are gingerly misfit, Jessica constructs faces from people she sees, particularly the people who move quietly, seemingly unnoticed through her view. Her work as an artist is her voice of advocacy for wildlife & habitat restoration; she works to communicate inherent value in all things and that all things are ultimately dependent on another.


nATURAL HERITAGE PROJECT

An arts-based advocacy group founded by Jessica and based in Saint Paul. If you are an artist interested in wildlife and habitat advocacy check out the website for open Calls for Artists or become a Featured Artist.

β€œThe artist has to be something like a whale with (their) mouth wide open, absorbing everything until (they have) what they really need.”
