Jessica Sporn jumped into a full-time art career when she became a decorative painter while on an extended maternity leave from her job as an attorney in a Wall Street law firm. Creating textures on walls, and designing and creating custom stencils and characters for wall murals, quickly led Jessica into the world of licensing and illustration. In 1996, Jessica began designing greeting cards for Recycled Paper Greetings. Since then, she has licensed designs worldwide; you can find her artwork on fabric, tabletop, and stationary products for companies as diverse as Robert Kaufman, Leap Year, Aviv Judaica, Leanin’ Tree, Marian Heath, and Hallmark. Jessica has long loved designing and creating her own stencils, and is happy to be doing so for Stencil Girl. When she’s not in her studio, Jessica is practicing and teaching yoga, and is a 500 hour certified instructor.
Jessica is an accomplished, self-taught, mixed media artist whose style is colorful and ranges from whimsical to spiritual with a strong Folk Art influenced. She hosts a successful Meeup Group with monthly classes in her Montclair studio, and sometimes teaches at The Ink Pad in New York City and Art-Is-You Mixed Media Retreats.
Jessica keeps an active blog at http://www.jessicasporn.blogspot.com, and is represented for licensing by Creative Connection Inc. Jessica is always looking for more art licensing and teaching opportunities.
The mom of two girls, Jessica lives with her husband and many pets in Montclair, New Jersey.
