Jessie Beauvilliers is originally from a small town in Quebec, but has been in Victoria for over 20 years. Being an introvert she spent a lot of time alone with books learning about animals and nature, observing how everything works and noticing all the details in the world around her. She is a self-taught artist with no schooling or degrees. She has been an artist since she was a young child and she always loved creating and learning new methods and techniques.
For the past few years she has been working with ink pens, learning how to draw ocean life, which is one her biggest passions, as Jacques Cousteau says "The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever."
She has taught herself two new techniques while using ink pens, called hatching and stippling. These techniques have helped Jessie a lot during times of high anxiety, having to focus on such small details is a really good way to meditate while creating. During these last few years she has created a huge portfolio of drawings and eventually she decided to share her passion with everyone by creating a line of greeting cards. In 2021 she has expanded to a bigger selections of merchandise created from her artwork, which has also become not only about the ocean and a little fantasy but also the life in our fauna and flora "The love for all living creatures is the most noble attributes of man." - Charles Darwin
