Jessika has deepened her perspective on artistry through practicing shamanism and by participating in Amazon's Sacred Fire of the Heart’ ceremonies.
Writing her Master Essay she gave a lecture on intuition, trusting your process, following the white rabbit and finding the golden thread.
Jessika has been teaching blind drawing & cut-up poetry, staged photography, left-hand path croquis, tarot and Sha(wo)manism workshops at Bildmuséet and foundation art school in Umeå and curated two exam exhibitions.
"As a Master of Fine Art I have developed my seeing beyond the physical into divination."
Jessika is indeed inspired by witchcraft, alchemy, feminism, herstory, ecology, politics, psychology, philosophy and spirituality.
She has been published in various exhibition catalogs,
anniversary books and web-based art magazines.
2018 she participated in The 12th Shanghai Biennale with a soundpiece coming from a sea shell called 'Notes From The Ocean - Mind Mapping From The Sea.' The theme of the 13th SHanghai Biennale is 'Bodies of Water'.
