5 minutes with...Jessica Zoob

I have been a longstanding fan of Jessica's work and have been excited to see her stunning paintings turn into fabrics, wall coverings and cushions. It's honestly hard to pick a favourite piece if her work, but I guess my top 3 are 'Dancing Angels 1' 'Glimpse' and 'Beginning' - saying that, having trawled through her website and stared endlessly at her different paintings, I would be happy and proud if any were hanging in my home! I feel like you can get really lost in her artwork, I find myself staring and dreaming, they truly inspire me.
