My name is Jestina. I am originally from Pennsylvania but have lived in Chicago since 2009.
I am currently a paraprofessional. It's so rewarding working with kids that have autism. Although I love it, I like to relax.
I love art, especially the fact there are many forms of art. What I love most is photography and painting. When I take pictures, I try to capture beauty in the moment that others may not be able to see. With paintings, I express my emotions, wants, and needs all on boards or canvases. Abstract paintings are my favorite because they are so unique; I like to see things differently than others and vise versa- abstract paintings do that.
I also add glitter to most of my work because I have always loved glitter.
I am not a known artist, but I am an artist and I am looking forward to expanding. I have thought about this for a while and now seems like the perfect time.
I am making many changes in my life and this is somewhat of an inspiration for me to move forward to things that make me who I am.
I appreciate anyone and everyone who gives me feedback on my art or ever buys from me.
