I’m Jes, a self taught artist, and the creator of Mishes. While sculpting is a relatively new venture of mine (2016), I have been a prolific creative for as long as I can remember. My working style is heavily inspired by the witchy magic of deep, dark forests, and the folklore surrounding cryptid, horror, & mythological beasts. To learn more about the creation of Mishes & the story behind them, visit Mishes, A History.
I currently run & operate Mishes from my home studio in Virginia, USA where I reside with my husband, three children, pet rabbit, tank of aquatic critters, and menagerie of plants.
Creativity seeps into most aspects of my life, including my interests in antiques, architecture, photography, & body modification. However, when I am not being creative, I enjoy reading, running D&D campaigns for my children & a group of our friends, blasting my favorite metal tunes (including my husband’s band), playing video games, hoarding rocks & other weird stuff to include in my curiosity collection, and watching movies like The Dark Crystal & The Hobbit on repeat.
As a business, I place great emphasis on being as environmentally conscious & socially active as possible by making use of recycled, reusable & biodegradable materials & practices within my business, and by vowing to use my ever growing platform as a way to spread awareness & gain the means to donate to both local and worldwide organizations.
