Jessica Gordon

[+] Bio | Comments |

Jessica Gordon is an American painter focusing on narrative figurative works. Jessica sought a creative outlet which led her to pick up a paintbrush for the first time. She fell in love with the idea of creating something entirely her own. Self-taught, she is paving her way, giving the viewer an insight into her mind and creative instincts.


Emerging strong, Jessica’s work has been found in multiple publications and selected for numerous shows throughout the United States. Selected in 2019 by American Art Collector’s editor Joshua Rose for “Painting Now” as one of “Today’s most exciting painters in representational art”. Jessica was awarded Honorable Mention in the ground-breaking 2019 Bennett Prize. Two of Jessica’s paintings were awarded Finalist in the 14th International Art Renewal Center Salon Competition and “A New Hope” was chosen for Spectrum 2019 at the Hunter Museum of American Art.


Appreciative of the merited paintings she has created, Jessica looks forward to developing a thoughtful and continuously growing fine art career. Sharing her work has become a passion that drives her. Jessica resides in Davidson, NC with her husband and two children. She is represented by Robert Lange Studios in SC. 




Much of my work includes water as a theme. Water represents in my work, a metaphorical character in the narrative.


It is important to me that my art is my own creation. My creative process starts with thumbnail sketches. This leads to setting up scenes to photograph for the source material; which includes gathering people willing to get wet, wardrobe, props, location, lighting etc. Ultimately, I assemble the components, adjusting until the vision in my head is captured or approximated. It is from there that I start the painting process.


I paint to challenge myself, express my feelings and connect with others.
