Brief Summary
My name is Jess Sisson, and I like to make things just for the sake of making them. I'm a recent graduate of the University of Rio Grande, where I freelanced my way through the 4 year BFA degree doing design work for the local community. Which is easier said than done in a rural community. 

I love the fine arts, literature, and Jesus, and my best work comes out when I'm promoting or expressing one of these things.
