Jessie moved to the Tricities from Burnaby over 25 years ago and has never looked back or thought of moving anywhere else. Even though she had a teaching background she decided to pursue Interior Design at BCIT but never really went into the field as her family came first. She works full time with the Provincial Government and 5 years ago picked up her paint brushes after her family nudged her to resume her passion of painting. She has been a member of the Port Moody Art Association for the past 3 years and has participated in a few Art shows including 2 shows at the Port Moody Art Gallery. She has a great passion for the Arts and enjoys giving back to her community whenever and however she can.
