"As I create a painting I am taken into each location. I choose a painting by how it makes me feel at that time. Most of my subject matter is of Polynesian culture due to my great love and respect for the culture. Painting is in my soul and if I can bring out what is in my heart and put it on paper or canvas I feel complete satisfaction . . . especially if I can make someone else who views my work feel the same way."
Jessica Keller is a self-taught award winning artist. Her interest in painting began as a child. She works in various media, sometimes mixing them together to achieve just the right affect. Her subjects range from portraits to beautiful land and seascapes and she has a special fondness for those pieces she has done depicting Polynesian culture. Jessica's first solo show was in 1998 in Northern California which brought forth her art being featured on "Artist Alive" in Northern California, a 30 minute TV interview with Ms. Keller. She has participated in many open shows and PBS art auctions and continues to have solo shows whenever possible. Currently her work can be seen at Very Special Arts California Gallery in Santa Ana, California, The Muscular Dystrophy Association Art Collection in Tucson, Arizona and at Fulton's Folly in Fresno, California. She is currently the Art Director for the MDA Summer Camp Program near Fresno.
Jessica's desire is to convey a sense of serenity and to share the beauty of Polynesia with those who view her work.
