"Darling, you are a work of art.
You have the ability to fully display beauty apart from vanity, influence apart from manipulation, style apart from materialism, kindness apart from passivity, strength apart from competition & dignity without degradation.
You are a catalyst to transform the world around you through your wit, wisdom, character & courage- all the while creating beauty & embodying love.
You are not only interesting, but original, not only good enough, but exceptional- not just here, but here with purpose."
Darling, Issue 24, SELFLESS
Jessica Kennedy earned her Bachelors Degree in Fine Art
from Columbus State University in 2018. She's now working as an Events Coordinator carrying out her passion in executing grand events for The National Infantry Museum.
Jessica is a Columbus based artist, best known for her active role in the local art community as the
Creative Director & Founder of
The Columbus Collective.
Jessica dedicated most of her art career putting on unconventional events and professional fine art shows bringing the community together through art.
She designed art shows to give talented local artists (who don't have the financial means, or community support) the opportunity to show and sell their artwork.
She is passionate about helping artists and building a more supportive artistic culture (artists supporting artists) in Columbus. Through a lot of hard work, late nights and successfully, rewarding art shows - an art renaissance was born in Columbus!
In college, she spent most of her time studying society’s obsession with beauty and the happiness we seek within it, within our lives. Jessica creates vibrant oil and resin paintings, and floral installations.
She celebrates the beauty of the Earth and uses it to enhance a setting where the furniture and objects are all a part of a greater experience.
