Jessica Levant is a native San Franciscan who has lived in New York and London for a total of 30 years. Always ‘interested’ in art, she didn’t consider herself a serious artist until returning to San Francisco in the late 90′s when she re-designed her career and her life. She is mainly self-taught, though has taken various classes in painting and photography over the years. She defines her Photo Art as ‘unexpected views of the ordinary and ordinary views of the unexpected’. She is drawn to shapes, juxtapositions and visual irony, mostly in urban settings.
In the ’90′s she started a graphic and web design business, pulling together art interests and fascination with computers. In the last few years, her passion and developing skill with the endless possibilities of digital manipulation have finally taken her into the joyful world of fine art.
WHERE TO SEE THE WORK: Her photographs are regularly exhibited in the juried shows at the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery (3489 Sacramento Street, San Francisco) and have been also featured at the Belmont Art Center, Expressions Gallery and the CK Gallery in Oakland, the Coastal Arts League in Half Moon Bay and Misho Gallery in San Francisco. She has had images accepted into four shows at the Stillpoint Online Gallery in Maine, had 70 pieces in a group show in October 2011 at the Live Worms gallery in San Francisco, and has had annual solo shows for the past three years at the Bay View Boat Club in San Francisco and is scheduled for another this year.
