Jess Pillmore's Profile

About

I’m an internationally touring teaching artist. What? One who travels 250+ days out of the year to perform (theatre, dance, music), teach those skills to others (pre K - professional), and produce/write music (3 cds to date, hear them at www.jesspillmore.com).

I’m co-founder of an educational physical theatre company, Creatively Independent, as well as co-founder of an Americana Indie music label, RoadWorm Music.

A Second Chance is an extension of all that inspires me. I find expressive, abandoned/discarded sweaters and imagine their lives. I imagine what they can now become and who might be drawn to it. My different arts have common threads: improvise, enjoy the moment, listen, see the big picture and soak in the details.

Recycling, recrafting and supporting charity stores…

Recycling, recrafting and supporting charity stores like Goodwill and Salvation Army is how I try and make a difference. While on the road so much, I come across some great vintage pieces that don't fit me... so why not spread the love?

I spend most of my time teaching others how to find and express their personal voice. Now, I’m helping these pieces do the same for you.
