Makeup and Visual Artist
Jessica (stylized JTP) is a makeup and visual artist based out of New York City. Starting early in her youth, she was fascinated by all things creative and the ability to make an idea come to life through tactile work in various mediums. From this early age, she grew more inspired and discovered the transformative power of makeup as it relates to character design. This concept would always be present in the entertainment she consumed and fueled her to chase a dream of making her own someday. Furthermore, the drive to actualize her creativity in a visual manner led her to explore theatre, painting and drawing as a teenager. After gaining some self-taught skills, Jessica applied to art schools. Once accepted into the BFA program at Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania, she was able to hone in on her interests and learn in an academic setting. Throughout her time at university, Jessica was able to try new and exciting mediums which eventually led her to focus on Painting and Studio Arts. Throughout this time, she was attempting to connect the dots between her interest in visual Fine arts and her ultimate passion, Special Effects Makeup. The chance to combine these artistic passions became a reality when Jessica attended the Makeup Designory's Master Makeup Artistry program in New York City after she had graduated from college. This school experience allowed for practical application of her previous experience to materialize and serve her through the various classes she completed. As she continues to expand on her knowledge and light up the spark of creativity, Jessica hopes to be a part of many fantasy and horror Special Effects projects among others.
