About

Jessica Tyler is an artist currently living and working in the city of Los Angeles. She received her BFA in Painting and Drawing from The Tyler School of Art.

The idea of the epic has led Jessica down obsessive paths, which includes detail pattern making and collaging. Her work articulates an exploration of beauty and destruction in natural environments using 2D and 3D techniques to build alternative and abstracted landscapes. Her new body of work is rooted in a personally written folktale which Jessica believes through the use of her paintings and illustrations will take her whole life to visualize fully.
