Art helps share thoughts, ideas and visions that may not be able to be articulated any other way. Jessica enjoys painting on wood, feathers, baskets, poplar, and birch bark. Jessica has been creating more intricate, non-conventional canvas pieces that engage viewers to develop creative thinking, visual literacy and engage discussion of Indigenous issues that her people are facing today.
