"Jessica Gracia, is a French born artist currently studying Art History at the University of Calgary. Before starting her degree, she studied at Algonquin College for Digital Illustration and Conceptual Art. Art has been a huge aspect of her life, allowing her to express her voice as a queer female artist. Jessica loves and is inspired by Feminist artists such as Judy Chicago, Frida Kahlo and Doreen Garner. Currently, Jessica is focusing on her career as a tattoo artist in addition to developing her skills in printmaking, specifically screen-printing. Her work as an artist expresses her versatility and creative nature. You can find Jessica’s tattoo page tete.de.patate. She is also curating an exhibition at Alberta PrintMakers which you can visit between May 15th – July 2nd."
