Pearljammies, paper collage artist

Jessica Shincovich thrives on connection. Whether across ideas, images, people, or culture, she is adept at finding, studying, then revealing these connections hidden within seemingly disparate entities. In her work as a paper collage artist, Jessica finds ultimate expression of this skill. Paper flows through her nimble fingers like water as she unites fragments of color, texture, and pattern sourced from an array of magazine photographs that, once deconstructed, she blends into wholly new compositions noted for their depth, power, and movement. 

Currently working in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Jessica has received an award for special recognition in Light Space Time's 3rd annual Open Art Competition (November 2013). She was also voted overall winner of Etsy’s Team Whatever challenge, “This is Sparta!" (August 2013). She is slated to teach a non-credit collage workshop to college students during January, 2014. Her work is included in private collections in Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Sydney, Australia.

    I hardly remember a time during my youth that I did not spend creating. I have worked in a number of media. In 2010, I discovered collage; the fit was instantaneous and complete. It is my medium, and in it, I find freedom and voice.
