Jessica Alpern Brown is a multidisciplinary artist that creates fine art and design for homes, public realms, and the built environment. At the core of her practice is a desire to contribute art that will integrate naturally into daily life and a belief that fine art can inspire functional design. As a form of communication not limited by language or cultural barriers infusing meaningful aesthetics into ubiquitous objects offers a unique opportunity for shared experiences. With that in mind she creates works that focus on the separations and connections of our interwoven lives.
Jessica comes from a diverse background centered in the arts and has been mastering fabrication techniques for nearly 20 years. While she is primarily a paper cutter, Jessica works with a variety of materials from acrylic, metal and wood to found objects, organic matter and non-toxic resin.
She believes that the best art comes from moments when thoughtfulness and skillful making intersect so she pursues both in equal measure. She resides in Pittsburgh, PA with her husband, son and cats. She is represented by Boxheart Gallery and is a recipient of the Emerging Artist scholarship for the Three Rivers Arts Festival.
