Hi, I'm Jess, an illustrator + designer inspired by nature, pop culture, and animals!
I first began working freelance in 2013, and formed my brand "blushsprout" in 2017. I work as an illustrator & asset artist for retail brands and app developers, as well as travel across the United States to sell my work at art shows and conventions.
Please enjoy my work! :)
