HI. 

My name is Jessica Daisy Mannings, a British artist grown in Bahrain.

My practice describes the journey of healing one's mind, body and soul through abstraction. Deconstructing form alludes to the separation of body and soul, acknowledging impermanence and unseen worlds, inspired by years of sleep paralysis. Philosophies of Abstract Art and Abstract Expressionism lie at the heart of my work, along with spiritual teachings spanning from the Bhagavad Gita, Eckhart Tolle, and yoga and meditation. I seek to evoke a sense of the mystical, capturing the soul and energy of all those I paint and draw, understanding that authentic art springs from a place of surrender and flow.
