An Artistic Heritage
Ms. Rockwell’s unique and exciting talent was kindled by her cousin, renowned American artist Norman Rockwell. She considers him the greatest source of her inspiration and carries on his legend by capturing the warm, human touch in her oil portrait paintings as well. Today, her works grace the homes of professionals and celebrities throughout the world and are deeply cherished by their owners.
About The Artist
Jessica Priscilla Rockwell, born of an old Savannah family, and reared in beautiful Savannah, Georgia, in an ante-bellum house named Bonnie Doon located on the Vernon River, has been extensively formally trained in Fine Art at Sophie Newcomb College in New Orleans, University of Georgia at Athens and the Kuntzgewerbeshule of Basel, Switzerland. This training launched her for further artistic endeavors in Paris and Avignon in France; Rome, Italy; Montreal, Canada and California. When she discovered a special love for making portraits, she found an intriguing niche. “Although a special time in one’s life cannot really be repeated or relived, there is a way that it can be immortalized in art. What I do is to strive to capture the very essence, the exact unique individual with each subject that I paint. This is how I express my joy of creating.”
Ms. Rockwell has won such awards as an art scholarship from the Georgia Governor’s Honors Program, and “Best of Show” at the prestigious Beverly Hills Art in the Gardens Affaire. She has been affiliated as a member of the American Society of Portrait Artists.
Since 1999, Ms. Rockwell has made her home in Clearwater, Florida, where she has had two one-woman shows, and built a large studio that shows her work. She is very helpful and would enjoy discussing your portrait ideas with you in a no-obligation free consultation. Just contact her here.
