Jessie Foakes [Biography]

Jessie Foakes

Born and raised in Essex, Jessie would describe herself as ‘not a typical Essex girl’, only recently moving out of her van which she spent the last year living in.

As a tattoo artist Jessie recently transitioned her medium from skin to canvas, only within the last few months has Jessie had time to pick back up the brushes and reignite her creative passion. She continues to evolve her creative practice every day, experimenting with new characters, colours and themes.

Jessie says, “I’m used to working in a kind of here and there style, and I guess that’s how I paint. I love working with something super obvious and changing it into how I see it... a change here and there... see how we go. I use anything to paint with, rulers seem to be a go to at the moment but just anything I can get my hands onto really, snapped bits of wood, palette knifes , pens , spray paint.”
