I don’t ever remember a time when art wasn’t a part of my heart and soul. From a young age, I would draw — especially wildlife. Growing up in West Cork surrounded by natural beauty, it inspires me to create the way I do. The wild terrains, the amazing coastlines, the beautiful countryside...there is no place like it 

My self-taught style of painting would be described as ethereal and colourful while continuing to capture the realism of the subject. I specialise in charcoal and soft pastels, creating a realm where the wonders of the wild live in a prismatic dream world.

Known in the real world as Jessica Pettit-Mee but much like my artwork, I chose to create a world where my name and my art allow me to unleash creativity. I sign my work with my creative name, Jessica Ivy. Ivy has always held a special place in my heart. I love how it winds its way around a person’s home, uninhibited, enveloping it and becoming part of it. My art is meant to do that, too — to belong to a person’s home, their heart.

Welcome to my gallery website and shop, where you can enjoy a sample of my work or commission a special piece as a gift for yourself or a loved one. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating it.
