Jessica Lawrence (Garrett) – 2020 Brinton 101
Jessica Garrett had a passion for art beginning at a very young age and started drawing around the age of 3. In 2005, she was awarded a merit scholarship from Scottsdale Artists’ School and participated in workshops with R. A. Heichberger and Chris Saper. Jessica’s artistic interest centers around the subject of landscapes, in particular, radiant sunsets which she paints en plein air. Capturing nature’s varying patterns of light and color have become an obsession for her. She has recently added portraiture to her portfolio. The 2019 Brinton’s “Artists in Residence” show included a self-portrait of the artist. In 2018, Jessica was a recipient of the Governor’s Choice Award at the Cowboy Up exhibition of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona.
