Jessica Desmoulin

“Patterns occur in nature over and over.  They are found in the rings of a tree, the waves in the ocean, the cracks in the earth and the petals on a flower.  I am fascinated by these patterns and by how colour plays an essential role in creating their design.  It is said that Nature is ‘the greatest artist’, and I cannot argue with that.  I draw my inspiration from Nature and from the Patterns I see in its many creations.”

Jessica Desmoulin was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on September 18, 1978. She is Ojibway of the Pic River First Nation. As a child she lived in Rochester, Alberta and later in Sparwood, British Columbia.

After the birth of her second child, Jessica developed an illness that left her unable to work outside the home. Jessica took this opportunity to approach her art seriously and began to paint canvases and occasionally buffalo skulls. She credits the love and support of her family for allowing her the chance to explore her love of art.  Jessica currently lives in Edmonton, Alberta.

"I try to put myself into my art through the use of intuition and emotion. I use the colours that are mainly natural tones and earth tones. I also like to use silver, gold and copper because it is like Mother Nature’s jewellery to me. I am greatly influenced by nature.

All of the animals I paint have special meanings to me. The swan represents mother, keeping its young safe and warm through all stages of their life. The bear represents protection, being strong not only in body, but in spirit. The animals in my paintings quite often reflect my family and loved ones."
