My Visit to Jessica Zoob's Preview at her East Sussex Based Studio

Dorte Januszewski Inspiration Jessica Zoob News

I was very excited when I received an invitation to the preview of Jessica Zoob’s latest oil painting, which is also her largest. I adore her work, which is inspired by the unique landscapes, soothing nature around her, and beautiful memories of her travels. She creates her amazing impressionist paintings in her magical and light filled studio just outside of Lewes.

Jessica is such a welcoming and warm person with a big smile. Surrounded by the South Downs, the views from her studio are breathtaking. The seasonal colours, huge sky, rolling in mist and different light throughout each day must be so inspiring. Can you imagine magical evening light flooding through these windows on a late summers day?

I love visiting artists and makers studios. It feels like they each have a story to tell. Jessica's stunning artworks, utensils, brushes, paint pots and paint tubes, paint covered boots, tables and floor are all part of her story. I came away feeling truly inspired.
