Jessica C. White grew up in Taiwan where she learned to love storybooks, art, and traditional crafts, and is now a studio artist in Asheville, NC. Her work is both visually and textually inspired by children’s book images, medieval bestiaries, folk tales, and the daily news. Through her work, she explores fear and courage, blind optimism, naïveté, and wonder. Her can be seen in collections including Yale University, Stanford University, Lingnan University Hong Kong, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Fancy degrees she holds include an MFA and MA in Printmaking from the University of Iowa, a Graduate Certificate in Book Studies from the UIowa Center for the Book, a BFA in sculpture from East Carolina University, half of a pilot’s license and half of a sailing certificate.
