Jessica has been a makeup artist for 12 years. Her interest in film and makeup started in 2005 when she assisted her sister, a makeup artist at the time, on a low budget music video. What caught her attention was how creativily involved the makeup artist has to be when developing characters or looks. She took her interests a little further and enrolled at The California Academy where she learned a great deal about makeup artistry and skincare.
For the past six years she has been the Makeup Department Head on an Emmy Award winning television show called Portlandia. When she is isn't busy helping bring to life Portlands finest characters, she busies herself with commercial, print and feature film projects.
