Jessica Hedrick

Photo of Jessica HedrickJessica’s artistic talents thrived growing up under the mentor ship of her father, Ron Hedrick. Her father first handed her oil paints, brushes and a canvas at 5 years old – she has not stopped since.

In her high school years, Jessica spent an inspiring workshop with Gordon Applebee Smith, a notable Canadian artist where he made her promise to continue to develop her work.Several years later she studied art at the University College of the Fraser Valley under Bruce Paschak who taught her to enjoy the creative process and to expand her concepts of art. After college she has enjoyed trips to Italy and France, studying their magnificent historical pieces of art that triggered her to pursue painting full time and committed her to developing her talents to the fullest extent. When she returned from Europe Jessica joined the collection of artists, The Stave Falls Artist Group, in the outskirts of Mission, BC.

Jessica has developed her style, inspired primarily by the French, Russian, and American Impressionists. She mostly paints from life, whether it be models in the studio, outdoor painting amongst the mountains, or still-life.

Landscapes are her most recognizable pieces, though she thoroughly enjoys portraits and still lifes as well. Her style incorporates a sincerity of light and colour with loose brushwork, while trying to explain to the viewer what exactly she was inspired by in the work.

Jessica has studied under numerous Canadian and American painters including Gordon Applebee Smith, Bruce Paschak, Carolyn Anderson, Kevin Bielfuss, Thomas Anfield, Ingrid Christensen, Dominik J. Modlinski along with many others.

Jessica Hedrick married in the fall of 2011 and, along with her husband Dave, owned and operated the Rendez-Vous Art Gallery until 2013.She presently lives in the Okanagan where she has found a new muse for her painting.

“I create paintings of celebrating life: outdoor spaces I love, objects of beauty and interest, and visually intriguing people become an exploration where I can see deeper into the subject matter. My goal is to help the viewer observe the interesting qualities and mood that I experience in the subject matter.”
