About Me

I don't flake. So if you haven't received something that you should have, let me know and I'll resend.

Hi! I'm Jess. All of my ATCs are hand drawn/hand painted. You can see my current work on my Instagram or see examples of some of my older ATCs on my website in my portfolio section.

If youโ€™d like to do a hand drawn/hand painted private swap, message me! :)


While extras are very kind, I don't really have much use for them as I do not do multi-media. Super not necessary! I put all of my effort into my art and that's all I expect from anyone else.

Family is always a tough crowd, right?) I would love to do a private swap with you any time! I'm sure you get that request a ton because your artwork is amazing! Adding as friend....

Comment: Jess, did you make this ATC? I love it!! What did you use, watercolors? So awesome!! I never thought of making this kinds of ATC's. I always use lots of layers, embellishments! Thank you so much!!
Response: Thank you! Yes it was watercolor with a few bits of micron pen for a couple details. Iโ€™m so glad you like it! Heโ€™s one of my favorites so far. Much more elaborate than I usually do. But Iโ€™m fascinated with all things mini ๐Ÿคฃ

Comment: Thank you so much, Jess, for your wonderful ATCs! I especially loved Falcor! Two of my sons and I were sitting on the porch two nights ago, talking about their favorite childhood movies, and The Neverending Story was one of them. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–
Response: Yay! I'm glad they arrived safe and sound! That movie is such a classic! Definitely a favorite in my house as well :)
Comment: Wow! I love my little Nessie card! Thank you for the awesome swap, what did you paint him with? ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค
Response: I'm very happy you like him! I painted him with watercolor. I mostly have small tubes of Cotman Winsor & Newton. Then I spray my paintings with Krylon UV-resistant acrylic coating so they shouldn't fade like most watercolors.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful ATC! I just love it and I can not even explain in words how much I am excited for it! You are truly so talented and I am so incredibly happy to have this beautiful piece in my ATC collection. Thank you so much again, I truly appreciate you! Hugs! -Addie<3
Response: Iโ€™m so glad you like it! Iโ€™m getting back into the ATC game and I forgot how much joy there is in sharing your art :)

Comment: 3+ years and finally getting a rating to you! I do feel bad and I am embarrassed about it also. I have been on an emotional roller coaster and I am hoping that it has finally came to an end. Life is not always fair. But we will survive! A while back, I promised myself to make right all the people and ATC's I have neglected to complete. It has been bugging me, as this has never been how I usually handle things. A few days late possibly, but always completed. I am so sorry about this and I do hope that this long awaited rating, will bring your paperwork to a 100% close at for anything I still owe you. If there is something else that you are missing from me, please let me know asap. Again ... Sorry!!!
Comment: Wow Jess, these cards are exceptional! I can't tell you how much I love them. Perfect swap every time. You're the [email protected]#t.
Response: Love swapping with you too!!! Always the most interesting cards :D

Response: Lol, I'm so glad you like it!!! I was a little worried b/c I'm not used to watercolor painting so large. And now I can't wait to get home to see if yours came! I'm sure I'll love it but I won't be home from work til like 9...Le sigh...

I still do not completely understand Markdown. I used to build sites in html as a kid, but Markdown confuses me somehow! Yay me. Lol...

bytekel on Aug 13, 2012:

I just wanted to tell ya... I decided to use this nice collage type frame I have for my ATCs that I love so I can always look at them. It is the perfect size to host 12 ATCs. I went through my collection and aside from The Rabbit your mom sent (which I can't put in that frame) I only have four that I would display... two of them being yours!

kayler00 on Aug 13, 2012:

is that gif of callie & arizona during the musical episode? I loveeee that episode!

Saristotle on Jul 27, 2012:

I checked out your DeviantArt page and I love your Wybie ATC!

Asmodeus on Jul 7, 2012:

Loving the profile!! (Especially the Misery)

Jess1016 on Jul 7, 2012:

Finally figured out Markdown. I think my head is still spinning...
