Jessika is currently living and working in Amsterdam. She has been working as a freelance stylist, designer and illustrator for several fashion brands and ad agencies ever since she received her degree in fashion and illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam.
One of her passions is travelling to countries such as India, Tanzania, Thailand, Mexico and Indonesia, and her art practice can be seen as a reflection of those travel experiences. Jessika’s expressive patterns and vivid colour schemes show the influence of these places. She also gets inspired by the people and the streets of Amsterdam and other cities, as well as the world of fashion and streetwear.
Her current work ranges from illustrations, visualising, pattern design, handlettering and screen prints to large murals.
