Born and raised in Staten Island, New York, Jessica Cappelli received her B.A. from McGill University in Industrial Relations and Economics and her M.A. from Rutgers University in World History. Today she lives in the beautiful countryside of rural western Massachusetts and travels often to the United Kingdom and Ireland. Jessica is inspired to draw things that remind her of our shared humanity across time and space. She hopes that if we are conscious of our small place in the universe and its past that we will be humbled into caring more for one another and our precious planet earth. She is self taught and likes to work with graphite pencils.
