Jessica has been an artist ever since she could hold a crayon, and she has been a speed artist over half her life. Jessica's speedpainting career began in the pageant world- a world where being bold about your faith was risky and could jeopordize any contestatns hard work. As if being a painter was not unique enough, Jessica went where most contestatns avoided in the pageant world for fear of being scored low- being bold about her belief in Jesus as Lord. Jessica chose to take a stand for her faith in Jesus in a state-wide competition by painting the face of Christ in only 90 seconds upside down and ended up becoming nationally known as the "Jesus-painter". God honored Jessica's faith as she captured the hearts of many becoming the very first award winning speed painter in the history of the Miss America organization and Miss Tennessee organization to ever win talent with art. Jessica was the first award winning speed painter in the history of Miss America, and the first + only talent winning contestant in the history of Miss America to paint Jesus. Today, Jessica is still very well known as the first to blaze the trail for speedpainting on The Miss America Organization stage and still to this day is the only female performance painter in the Miss America Organization to have ever won talent. But her Miss America debut was only the beginning of her speedpainting career.
Jessica's talent caught the attention of a national television show on A&E and she was invited to perform on the show. Jessica's feature on A&E made her America's very first female speedpainter to be nationally featured on national television. Her now recent win of ABC's The Gong show where she performed and won the competition with a record 42 second painting she performed upside down on national television makes Jessica the current holder of the following records of performing the fastest painting on national television, the first female performance painter to paint on national television, and the first + fastest award winning female speedpainter to win on a national television network. New York Magazine has named her "The Mother of the Speedpainting Movement." Jessica has made history as the first female speedpainter in America and has now made her mark on national networks and national organizations. Her most recent debut is on a TBS commercial for Sherwin Williams paint that just aired and will remain on air for the next 2 years. Jessica performs and speaks all across the country passionately encouraging everyone to use their creative gifts, embrace their bold, and to make their mark on the world. Jessica is unique not just because she is a girl, but also because her performances are athletic and grip the viewer because the easels (she designs) scale to as long as 24 ft and she can perform them in as little as 90 seconds. Her skillset and creativity is a must-see experience and something that will change the way you experience art. Jessica has only been on the professional entertainment circuit a couple of years and has already led a movement, blazed a new trail, set new records, conquered barriers in a male dominated field, and made a name for herself on an international level. The fastest performance painter in the entertainment industry is a 26 year old female and she is just getting started.
