Jessica Garrett


Artist Bio

Jessica, the youngest of three children, was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1983. After moving to Nebraska and then Colorado, the family settled in Arizona.

Jessica was a precocious youngster and showed an uncanny talent for drawing at an early age. An active individual, her other interests include running, hiking, horseback riding, and tennis.

In 2005 Jessica received a scholarship at the Scottsdale Artists' School and took a workshop with R.A. Heichberger, a multi-award winning artist whose work is shown in prestigious galleries across the country. This was a turning point in her art career, as she began to pursue the art of landscape painting. Jessica now studies privately under Heichberger. "After 25 years of teaching, I have never seen such a perceptive and talented young artist. Jessica is only 24, but she is very mature. Week by week her technique improves and she is a natural for this type of painting. Painting landscapes is clearly her passion, and her passion continues to grow," Heichberger says.
