Jessica Chevalier of Eckert, was born and raised on the Western Slope of Colorado, surrounded by nature, mountains, and beauty. Jessica has been passionate about art from a young age. She began pursuing art education in high school, attending local classes, participating in clubs, and showing work in youth art shows. Her formal education began at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. While going to college she worked in sales at a local gallery.

She believes that people often take the beauty of this world for granted. Through the creation of her work, she hopes to expose the vibrancy of our surroundings in an impressionistic way. Working primarily in oil and acrylic, she uses unique strokes and colors to portray a vivid union of fantasy and reality.
