The heart of Jessica Holleque’s photography is rooted in moments of connection, documenting honest experience, and empowering her subject. She has applied this philosophy to wedding, family, and women’s portraiture, including specific work documenting the female artist experience. She is self taught in both her photography and ceramics mediums. Influenced by her upbringing in northern Minnesota’s rural mining region and her time spent in the field of chemical engineering, she brings curiosity and intentionality to the process of her creative practices. This last year she explored the layers of the female artist identity while an artist resident at both Holden Village and the Grunewald Guild in Washington, as well as traveled around the United States for 6 months completing her Mother’s and Maker’s photography series.
