Welcome. You might know me as @thedoodlejournal on Instagram! Keep reading below to learn more about me or use the menu above to explore my site.
I’m Jess, a New York City-based designer, illustrator, writer, and educator. I love drawing and using bright-colored paints, as well as designing for online and print. Be sure to check out my portfolio here on the site and my Instagram blog for more projects.
Writing is also a huge passion of mine. I love to write anything from poetry to small narrative pieces to larger essays. (View work here.) Working as a writing tutor for a university writing center has allowed me to successfully help others become better students and better writers, often giving them the boost they need to graduate. Additionally, I manage the center’s social media page, creating graphics and text to engage students and faculty, which is a great way to utilize both my design and writing talents.
I am always in search of other creative outlets and often try out new forms of art to grow as an individual. I want to encourage all artists to explore their talents beyond the computer screen, beyond the sketchbook, and beyond the canvas.
