Hi, I'm Jesselyn Behne but you can call me Jess. I graduated Miami University with magna cum laude in both of my degrees (Communication Design and Fine Art with a concentration in Sculpture.) I take pride in that I am both a designer and artist, and come to life when I am able to work in tandem with both fields.
My work revolves around experiences and concept. Within my work every element of the piece must have a purpose in order to create a holistic experience for the participant. Additionally, I enjoy making pieces that fuels my passions of true crime, extra terrestrials, and most importantly feminism.
Overall, I feel the most satisfaction when I am able to work with my hands. Like all artist I started drawing the instant I could pick up a pencil, this never stopped and only grew with time. I am now advanced in a plethora of media including: woodworking, sewing, embroidery, painting, mold making, the Creative Suites, etc.
Finally, I love working collaboratively. The pieces I have most enjoyed making involved some form of connection making. Whether these connections are made through traditional artist working with artist or research driven experiential design, my work thrives on human interaction.
So, thank you for taking the time to look through my work and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
