For Jessie there has always been two things that are a burning passion of hers and that’s music and art. She started art at the age six years old and has had an on and off love hate relationship with it until she was about sixteen years old. Art took the back burner for many years after that as Jessie went through many life struggles and felt very lost for a long period of time. However, there was still a part of her that longed for it! She even remembers a conversation with her brother where they discussed how cool it would be to one day open a shop together where she could be a tattoo artist … it was such a great dream!! Jessie forgot about that conversation for years but there was still a subconscious part of her that was so incredibly interested by it.
It started off with a lost and confused twenty year old girl in her first apartment just doodling with friends. To then become a passion, Jessie gathered her portfolio and went around Montreal to try and find an apprenticeship, where she could better develop her skill set. At the time she didn’t have any luck finding one, no one was willing to teach her, so she decided to take matters into her own hands and teach herself!! This is one of Jessie’s greatest qualities, her passion, determination and drive. She decided that no one would stand in her way from achieving her dreams of learning and become a great tattoo artist.
She spent countless hours searching for any and all information she could get and it has been a roller coaster of a journey but a beautiful one that has made her stronger and challenged her as an artist. She is looking forward to working at Expressions, alongside amazing, kind hearted and talented artist that will continue to motivate her. She looks forward to meeting new customers and creating amazing everlasting works of art with them!
