ARTIST PROFILE

 

“Jessica Lopez is a self-taught artist, discovering her artistic abilities in her childhood. She always find herself daydreaming that leads her to think differently and creatively.

She was born on September 17, 1992 in Dagupan City, Pangasinan. She was the out-of-wedlock daughter of Jose Evangelista and Cordelina Lopez.

In her childhood, painting became her friend. She lives with relatives, and in times she need someone to comfort her in times of troubles, and simply no one is there to talk to and share some stories with, doing some artwork stuffs makes her feel better. She started joining art activities and contests since Grade 1.

In college, she wanted to pursue Fine Arts, but it was not meant to happen. She instead took Bachelor of Secondary Education at Benguet State University. She believed that she can maximize her artistic ability by joining an organization. She joined The Mountain Collegian, the official student publication of BSU as a cartoonist. But her guardian is against it, so Jessica left the publication and didn’t stay for long. Frustrated was her, she continue doing what she loves. She started to blog, and blogosphere opened door for her art life. She had her first client from a fellow Filipino blogger from Norway. With this, it gave her hope and challenge to do better. Study more.

On January 1, 2013, she started to take her passion seriously, spending time studying whatever she needs to know and improve on. She never ceases to dream and make it into reality, never feared to be different.

She looks forward for continuous progress in her art career. It takes a single step to reach longer journey. ”
