About Jessica: “I grew fascinated with images (especially snapshots) and pursued art and photography throughout my booklearnin’ — all the way from sunny Southern California to an MFA in Imaging Arts from Rochester Institute of Technology in upstate New York. Photography is my great love, second only to my love of craft and making. This pairing has brought me great joy in creating my handmade business Miniature Rhino, which I opened in August of 2008 on Etsy. It’s an honor to teach a photography workshop where I get to geek out on my favorite topics!”
