About Jessilyn Park

A mere two years ago, Jessilyn Park didn’t know she was an artist.

She picked up a brush for the first time while visiting her grandmother in December 2011. That was all it took to unlock her inner creativity.

“I was never artistic in school, besides a pottery class,” she says. “I actually had no clue I could paint or possessed this talent.”

Jessilyn sold her first painting on Facebook within hours of posting it. From there she sold another and another.

Her career took off as she landed venues, shows, contracts, and even a wine label in California. Today, she works to bring her positive and imaginative art to all that find themselves in a hard place.

To advance her artwork, and against the advice of family and friends, Jessilyn flew out to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, for a private apprenticeship with renowned, Russian-born impressionist Leonid Afremov.

“Everyone was concerned for my safety, but I knew this was the opportunity of a lifetime,” she says on her Facebook page.

The influence of the impressionist shows in her work in her vibrant colors and broad brushstrokes. Jessilyn uses dazzling hues to bring her highly stylized city and country landscapes to life.

Though she began working with acrylics, Jessilyn now uses oil with a palette knife to finish her creations. This was done in part to emulate the style of her grandmother, a talented artist who lost her sight five years go. Since then, Jessilyn has hoped to tap into the talent passed down through her blood as well as create inspiring scenes for her viewers.

“I think art/music has the ability to reach within our souls and change how we feel, live and see things,” she says. “Colors can enhance moods. I try to paint in colors that would inspire happiness in people.”

Lately, Jessilyn has been obsessed with light sources, paths and trees. To her they represent an artistic journey. She likes to play with themes like “finding [her] way through the forest” and “walking to the light.”

In less than a year, Jessilyn has gone from unknown to award-winning artist. It is her dearest hope that her message and inspiring story will resonate with the viewer.

“I want them to realize that anything is possible,” she says.
