Jessie Foakes

Jessie Foakes has a wonderful naive approach to painting. Her relationship with paint is a spontaneous one, and there is a sense of freedom and movement in the texture of her chosen subject. The sculptural quality of her work is rich and luxurious, and this is juxtaposed with the simplicity of the subject. Here lies the essence of Jessie’s style and the joy of her work; she chooses well-known characters or everyday icons and approaches them with a new fresh vision, offering an interpretation that is both stylistically unique and endearing. Bold, unstructured and energised, Jessie’s work has a magical quality that offers the viewer an overwhelming sense of nostalgia and imprints the feel-good factor!

Born and raised in Essex, Jessie has established herself as a prominent tattoo artist in her hometown, and whilst she has spent many years dabbling on and off with the paintbrush, it was only recently that she made the monumental transition of taking her painterly visions from skin to canvas.

Jessie’s passion for painting is obvious and she is loving experimenting with new characters, colours, and themes. From a collector’s point of view, emotionally investing in an artist with this kind of approach to painting presents a truly exciting future – never knowing where the paintbrush, the subject matter, and the character interpretations will lead.

Jessie says, “I am used to working in a kind of here and there style. I love working with something super obvious and changing it into how I see it… a change here and there… see how we go. I use anything to paint with, rulers seem to be a go to at the moment but just anything I can get my hands on really, snapped bits of wood, palette knifes, pens, spray paint.””
