JESS WEITZ

I am a multi disciplinary visual artist living in Marlboro, Vermont. My mediums have included photography, gouache, encaustics, handmade inks, found objects, writing, and clay. I also have a Buddhist meditation practice, practice Reiki, and teach expressive art classes.

 

I have taught classes in intuitive art and meditation since 2012, creating in-person and online courses for adults, with a primary objective of sharing my own practices and insight to help others rediscover their innate creative selves.

I currently teach art classes, workshops and provide 1:1 coaching online only.
