Jess Swan, an Australian artist, has used social media to make a huge impact in her artistic journey. Jess began painting on an impulse, defied resistance to posting on social media, and has turned her hobby into a full time art practice with paintings sold to collectors all over the world.
What may be perceived to some as a disadvantage, Jess uses her lack of formal art training as an opportunity to explore color and shape in her own way, without the restrictions of someone else's preconceived ideas. And well, Jess is mighty successful in following her intuition!
