The art on this profile is by Jessie Leahy (formerly Jessica Hoel). When she started her work, she lived in the Boston area of Massachusetts. In 2005, she gained representation in restaurants and small galleries, and began selling her fine art. In 2006, she became a Zazzle merchant. The following year, she began creating content to sell in Second Life (including 3D copies of her paintings). In 2007 she moved to CA. In 2009, she entered a 2D animation into a film festival and won in the Action category. It was at this point, that she decided to pursue 3D Modeling for games and animation. In September of 2011, she was awarded a 4000 prim region for a 3D Art Exhibit in Second Life that showed during the month of December; she made an Endangered Species Zoo Maze. In February 2012, she began selling here on Fine Art America. Currently, she again resides in the Boston area. (Images made prior to 2010 are signed with her maiden name: Hoel.)
Below are her thoughts on what inspired her paintings:
Often, we are so wrapped up in the dramas of our daily lives, that we loose the bigger picture: none of our lives will exist if we donít care for our home . . . Earth (and in an even bigger picture) the Universe. If we continue to act in self-destructive ways, we will destroy our home. To avoid doing so, we need to change our attitude towards all life to one of love. With love, we can create healing and new life.
With each person that changes their perception to one of love, we increase our chances to heal our lives and our planet. We must learn to coexist with all our neighbors, whatever the race or species. As what we do to ourselves, also affects our human, animal, and plant neighbors. Act out of love towards yourself and others, and you will receive love in return. It all begins with you.
Let the joys of life grow within you, and then spread to the world around you . . . as a flower grows under the light of the sun, spreads its seeds across the land, and creates more beauty for all.
