Jessica James Gilbert was born and raised on a small ranch in the mountains of Colorado. Ever since she can remember she has been riding and drawing horses. She’s ridden both Western and English, but her inspiration and her love for the western lifestyle started when she began helping on a local ranch moving cows to the high country. She has a natural way with horses and her deep understanding led her to know how to paint the horse with a critical eye, seeing each horse for its individuality. At the young age of 25, Jessica is just starting her career that will last a lifetime.
