SHOWS Blazer Mania 2Jess Hirsch lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota and is currently pursuing her MFA at the University of Minnesota. She grew up in rural Minnesota swimming until the lake froze over and making movies in the woods. Her work spans from delicate graphite drawing to large-scale sculpture. She is co-founder of Homeschool, a nomadic art gallery based in Portland Oregon, and co-creator of the Portland Healing Project, a healing workshop series and online resource for artists and low-income families to find affordable healthcare through alternative medicine. When Jess is not sharpening pencils, she rides her bike, takes her precious Boston Terrier to the park, and schemes how art can make life better.
