Jessie Benson creates beeswax and oil paintings using a technique she originated in 2013. After applying several layers of beeswax to a cradled board, Jessie carves intricate nature-inspired drawings into the wax and uses oil paint to bring her line work to life. Jessie often includes her original poetry in her pieces as she explores themes such as love, family, and spiritual growth.
Jessie left a career as a physician to follow her dreams of becoming a certified life coach, yoga-meditation teacher, and professional artist. She also enjoys hiking, biking, and making desserts for her loved ones.
