My name is Jessica Baumgarner, and I am a watercolor artist based in Overland Park, Kansas. As a busy stay-at-home mom, I paint in my tiny, but cheerful, home studio space just beside my kitchen. Since motherhood goes in 24 hour shifts, paintings take shape between loads of dishes, laundry and family meals. Although visual arts have been a part of my life since I can remember, my formal education is in music. I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor’s degree in instrumental music education. I taught strings and dance classes at an arts integration elementary school for six years before moving to Kansas. When our family’s journey brought us to Overland Park, it was the perfect opportunity for me to reignite a passion I had long abandoned. Painting has given me so much joy and comfort in challenging seasons. I hope to extend those feelings of joy to everyone who sees my work, as well as encourage others to always pursue what they love.
