Jessika Heholt was  born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1990. After graduating highschool she went on to pursue a college degree in fine art. In 2011 she received a Bachelors of Fine Art in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design. Her work documents experiences and affections by arranging sentimental objects in space.

She exhibited work in a group show titled "Morphological Compulsions and Other Dubious Beckonings" and in an Auction/exhibition at Chroma Gallery. Most recently she showed with Gallery Godo and " Fabric talks" in Los Angeles California.

General Artist Statement:

Fervent confession, violent cries or zealous laughter never accurately convey the intensity of my internal passions. In moments of heightened emotion I retreat to my room, thirsting for a means of expression. My room is a collection of objects possessing sentimental value organized decoratively. I arrange them jointly making allegories watching them come to life. Their colors, shapes, texture and dialogue mimic frustrations, pleasures and situations.

The objects are then transformed into paintings making a visual diary. Marks range from smooth to textured, intricate to loose depending on mood and aesthetic exploration. The lengthy process allows dual contemplation of form and metaphor.

When completed and displayed the viewer is free to interpret, sympathize or empathize with the work. Instead of exasperating communication understanding is gained.
