Jessica James Gilbert
Eagle, CO | jessicagilbertart.com
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. 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 as an individual.
Over the past few years Jessica has been featured and supported by galleries in Vail, Steamboat Springs, and Beaver Creek, Colorado and in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Recently married and living in her home state of Colorado, Jessica paints full-time. She uses oil paints to create a minimal, feminine touch in Western art, focusing on the horse and cowboy or cowgirl.
Jessica is always striving to learn, experiment, create, and capture the modern-day cowboy. She is not afraid to stay the course and keep the passion, take risks, or fail. She is not afraid to fly beyond and learn from those she admires, understanding that it’s a process and a journey, not a race.
