The art of Jessica Stewart

Jessica Stewart is an artist working out of Melbourne, Australia. As stated in her bio she likes to “draw portraits of dreamers and lovers. Using pencil, paint and pastel she draws ships, homes, animals among all other sorts of symbolic objects to represent a bond, a freedom or maybe an escape from their current situation.” Growing up near the coast is a strong influence in her work and can be seen with the nautical elements many of the drawings have. Her drawings have a very painterly effect to them, and are very effective at pulling you in to the world she has created. I would love to see these in person as I know some of the details are lost when photographed. Also, if you head over to her Flickr you will see more drawings as well as some photography of hers. Make sure to check out her homepage, she has some original works and prints listed in her online shop.
