Jessamy is an illustrator and landscape artist, working in watercolour and gouache. Her paintings express a sense of place through line, texture, and colour, drawing on the local Dorset landscape – from patterns of fields, trees, and hedgerows, to the unique rock formations along the Jurassic coastline.
