Creator of “Nature Draws Itself”
Jessie Monaco is a multi-talented and prolific artist who has developed her own new awe-inspiring artistic style known as “Nature Draws Itself”. Her art is characterized by her keen view of the natural world and human nature and translating her observations in a unique artistic format.
She conveys her sense of discovery, humor and imagination through her skills in digital fine art, cartoon art, and design. Her signature style has developed from her keen sense of perception and her desire to provide viewers with a heightened visual experience.
As she explains, “It is my mission to find visual ideas that will entertain and invoke insight to the viewer. To see a concept come to life by creating art around it is my passion. My ‘Nature Draws Itself’ series is my creation and original way of working out images.”
Monaco’s art is in numerous collections and has been reproduced in greeting cards, textiles, apparel and posters for various clients throughout the world including projects for Pollack – Krasner House and Pepsi Cola Co. She has designed a line of Women’s hosiery called “Tatttoes”, and was commissioned as a Game designer using her line of characters called “Splashes with Glasses.”
Her many exhibitions include those at the NAWA Gallery and SVA Gallery, in New York. NY, and Flyway Gallery, in NJ. She participated in the “Art From The Heart”, an exhibition that focused on problem-solving through non-violence.
