b. 1986, HK.



Follow me here: 


I am originally from Titusville, PA. I studied art at Penn State and then quickly decided that I did not want to study art at all, but rather politics and human rights, so that I would actually have something to paint about. 

After that point, diving deep into my studies and then into my work as an anti-human trafficking case manager, I gave up on art. But a piece of me was always missing. This past year, with a new career and life, I have challenged myself to create something every day for a year. Something I call Create365. You can follow my work on Instagram at jess_porta to see what I am making today!

This year I will be publishing a children's book and otherwise plugging away so stay tuned!
