Aloha. My name is Jessica 7130, born in California and raised all up and down the East Coast, primarily Georgia. I became inspired to be an artist by my sister Casey, who expressed herself in the most extraordinary way. I vowed that one day I would be able to portray pieces of myself to you in the way that she did for me. Part of the proceeds from the purchase of my artwork will go to the WorkNet CARE Project that helps artists transition from prison back to the community.
Jessica's description of her artwork:
"Pointillism, the art of dots, is about taking individual pieces and allowing them to come together to create something whole. Each dot represents each one of us women at WCCC, isolated and seemingly inconsequential. But the truth is we are essential, and together we are fierce, we are whole, and we will not be tamed.

Thank you for purchasing and supporting our CARE Project artists. The purpose of the CARE Project is to help these talented artists market and sell their artwork so they can earn money for their transition back to their communities.
When you purchase an art piece, after printing and fulfillment expenses, we pay the artist 60% of the proceeds, and 40% goes to the WorkNet CARE project so we can assist artists with reentry support services.
We help our artists with services such as getting their ID documents, finding employment, housing, and other services they need for a successful transition.
Our artists come up with innovative ways of creating their art since they have limited access to art supplies. They may create their drawings on envelopes, and folders, or render their drawings on two pages. This is why you might see a line in the middle of their drawing.
When the prison allows us, we can provide them with colored pencils or pens so they can draw. What you see in their drawings is a resilient artistic expression that emerges regardless of adversity.
