Jess Wallace
— Tutor

Jess Wallace had an earlier incarnation as a professional jockey before attending the Byam Shaw School of Art. After graduating she worked for many years for the Natural History Museum making precision drawings of dinosaur fossils. Jess works with drawing, painting and photography, but over the last fifteen years her main focus has been a daily recording in clay of the beings sharing her life, including pigs, horses, cows and dogs, some of which are cast in bronze and exhibited in the U.K. and abroad.
