Biography & Artist's Statements

My name is Jessica Vail. I am a wife, a daughter, and an artist. I have had a passion for art when I was very young and I have been able to learn and develop my skills in art, specifically in sculpture. 


I went to college at Colorado Mesa University for five years. There I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History and Studio Arts - Sculpture. I learned so much about metal casting and had the privilege of making so many of my own sculptures out of bronze, steel, aluminum, iron, copper, etc… There I learned all about alginate. This is the same material I use for all my hand castings. I made a few sculptures of my own hands out of plaster and iron.


After I graduated, I learned even more skills in casting when I worked for a company that casted dinosaur bones. I learned so much about dinosaurs and casting, as well as painting on resin, that I was able to take those techniques and apply them to hand casting. 


I have had the privilege of casting other people hands for about a year now and the best part is seeing their faces light up when they receive their own cast. Bringing joy to others and being able to paint and sculpt brings joy to me.
