Jessica Maring

is a self-taught

artist. She drew

and painted

constantly

throughout her

childhood, and

the creation of

art remained a

relaxing pastime during her long first career.  On retiring from high tech in the mid-1990’s, Jessica began her second career as a professional artist.  In 2002 she moved to Arizona, where her work was shown by Sedona Spirit Fine Art Gallery and acquired by collectors throughout the Southwest and Europe.

    Her first major painting was an interpretation of a character from Celtic mythology, and until recently, all of her work reflected her love of the art and legends of ancient peoples.  On moving to Arizona, she fell in love with Native American tales and imagery and painted her vision of their characters with acrylics in the intense and vivid colors of the Southwest.  

    Jessica and her husband returned to California in 2006, settling in the Santa Cruz mountains south of San Francisco.  Reflecting her change of location from the arid Southwest to the lush California coast, Jessica’s style and subject matter also changed.  Her current collection presents California landscapes and seascapes, primarily in oils, rendered realistically in the broader palette of California’s thousand hues of green, the subtle shades of rain and fog, and the shadows of lingering twilight.  She paints from her own photographs, most of which are taken within an hour’s drive from her home.

    Since returning to California, Jessica has shown her work at various art and wine festivals, Open Studios, several exhibitions at the Santa Cruz Art League, and at Boulder Creek Art.
