Statement: Jessica Leitko Fields (that's me) is a working painter, collage gluer and general maker living in Greenville, SC.
I'm originally from, let’s say, Houston, because who remembers anything from before they were five anyway. And there I garnered a love for all things flat and stripey. Add a dose of a Louisiana farm on my mother's side and all those fields start to make sense. Then I married a Fields! Like a joke. I liked them so much I married them.
I went to school at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design where I learned to love paint and color and texture and to really, really hate snow.
I'm typically a teacher by trade with a special fondness for art history and history in general which will crop up in my titles from time to time.
