Jessie Tucker is a painter, sculptor, and mixed media artist living and working in Monroe, LA. She graduated from Louisiana Tech University with a BFA in Studio Art in 2011.
Born in Dallas, Texas, she lived in northern Louisiana for most of her young life, where she was greatly influenced by the artistic natures of her grandmother, aunt, and mother. As an adolescent, she lived on a ranch in north-eastern Texas. The time alone she found there, wandering cattle trails and stream beds through forest and field, encouraged introspective thought and curiosity about an individual’s relationship to the universe at large.
She still spends a good deal of time questioning humanity’s place in space, and some of her friends think she should lighten up a bit.
Jessie’s pieces are included in private collections throughout the U.S.
