My name is Jessica Mannings, a British-born artist educated abroad in the small, sandy Island of Bahrain, and graduate of Loughborough University, BA (Hons) (First). I am currently based in Farnham, UK.
My practice focuses on painting and digital art. The physical act of creation is integral to my work, which I align closely to the ethos of Abstract Expressionism; emphasising the importance of spontaneous authenticity.
Evidenced in my work is a fervent fascination with the human form and mind, and in recognising the intrinsic link between the individual and their art, I blend my own experiences and passions into the creative process.
