ABOUT THE ARTIST

Hello. 

My name is Jessica Daisy Mannings, a British-born artist educated abroad in the small, sandy Island of Bahrain, and graduate of Loughborough University, BA (Hons) (First). I am normally based in Farnham, UK, but am presently in Bahrain. The physical act of creation is integral to my work, aligning with Abstract Expressionist ethos; emphasising the sacredness of spontaneous authenticity. Evidenced in my practice is a fervent fascination with the human mind, body and soul, and recognising the intrinsic link between the individual and their art, I blend my own subjective experience with creative process. Existence is a beautiful and chaotic journey of continual learning. My work advocated a passion for healing, personal growth, and wellbeing, realised through self-reflection, spirituality, and creative expression.

In painting I discovered a cathartic language of the soul. Advocating tools of self-reflection and realisation, I encourage anyone and everyone to uncover their own creative outlet, and be rewarded their own little piece of peace.
