south china travel & lifestyle
After graduating from Fine Art and Art History at Manchester School of Art—with a brief time studying at L’Accademia di Venezia—Jessica traded the Mancunian rain for the sunshine and palm trees of southern China. Conveniently located close to Macau, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, Zhuhai is the perfect place to experience China.
Mesmerized by the developments in culture, language and cuisine in this pivotal moment, Jessica is never short on subjects to write about or moments to capture with the lens of her camera. Not only an avid creative professionally, Jessica runs LightUp Collective www.lightupcollective.co.uk in her spare time—an organization that uses art to instigate change in the community through events and workshops. She believes that with the universal language of artistic practices, complex issues can be tackled and overcome harmoniously.
At her best when running between meetings—attempting not to spill her Americano as she goes—she likes to keep busy and juggle many different projects.
