Jessica began her love affair with compelling images as a commercial photographer. It began when she graduated from high school and earned a scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design, opting for University of Florida’s Photojournalism school instead. Later, while interning with a noted Texas photographer, she improved on her techniques and expanded her knowledge. For many years, she operated as Jess Vogel Photography, and her work appeared in many noteworthy publications. Her photography work took her to many places including Telluride, Aspen, Breckenridge, Lake Tahoe, Beverly Hills and Nicaragua (to name a few). Initially splitting her time between her family, photography and painting, she decided to focus solely on her creative arts endeavors. Jessica opened Art and Salvage Gallery in 2008, and began to explore painting on glass, never satisfied by the limitations imposed by canvas. For most of the year, Jessica lives in Salida, Colorado with her husband and daughter, but as a family they spend as much time as possible in a small fishing village in northern Yucatan.
