Hi new friends!
“JDunbar Collections” is a collection of fine art, murals, and surface design/products meant to transform your space and elevate your mood.
My name is Jessica, and I am the artist behind JDunbar Collections. The first thing you need to know about me is that I love color! I’m pretty obsessed with it actually. And not just the bright ones you’ll see in my current body of work. I love finding different moods and aesthetic connections within softer tones as well. And patterns! Oh my gosh, I could go on and on about patterns! Basically, art is my passion and how I stay sane these days (my meditation).
I’ve been developing this style for 10+ years and try to challenge myself with each design/painting. Naturally that had me leaning into large-scale paintings and murals and I’m having so much fun with it! My underwater series is a collaboration with my go-to photographer, Rachel Sullivan Photography, and it has been in development for the last 5 years, just about as old as my daughter. Actually I believe I was pregnant during our first underwater photo session. I can’t wait to show it off properly!
I’ve done a few murals over the years (some of the first were as backdrops in my marching band years), and they’ve all been so awesome to work on! I’ve only just started to pursue them more after painting my daughter’s room entirely in rainbow colors. I saw how much impact it made to the space and want to continue helping create beautiful spaces in homes and businesses!
Jessica Dunbar has a background in Digital Mediums (Character Modeling, Digital Sculpting, and Textures) as well as Traditional Art. Her art studies color, shape, and pattern and how they play with the depth and composition of an image. Jessica combines her love of digital and traditional mediums through her process in creating these works of art. The designing process is completed digitally, transferred to canvas, and then painted traditionally. The digital mockups are finalized before switching mediums and are often used in her clothing line. The clothing line was originally created as a way for the art to live beyond the canvas and gallery format. Continuing on to the traditional process of painting the final pieces adds another layer of life to the work. Jessica considers the extremely tedious method of painting the backgrounds to be a form of meditation and often provide a sort of therapeutic release to life’s stressors. Currently she is working on a large scale underwater series, which is documented on instagram, as well as murals and surface design.
