Jessica Gregory Artist

Paintings and Sculpture

I am a painter working in most all mediums, I do works on paper, canvas and sometimes found object substrates. I create sculpture using recycled materials for armatures and cover with homemade paper mache clay that dries rock hard, finishing with paint and sealers. I also work with kiln fired clay. I teach art classes to those wanting to learn how to draw and paint both one on one and in groups for workshops in painting. I also do commissioned works of art.

Murals, art, live art

I've been painting large-scale murals in the Knoxville area for the last 2 1/2 years since I went out on my own. From bars, restaurants, schools, city buildings and park walls, I have worked with numerous local businesses by visually and physically interpreting their ideas to help their business grow and become eye-catching. I do not plan to stop any time soon and hope to create some sort of art movement in this city which is already happening.

Aespyre Metal Design

Sculpture, ornamental and architectural ironwork

I design and create sculpture, trophies, ornamental and architectural metalwork. Ranging from large, outdoor and site-specific sculpture to custom trophies for large corporations like RedBull and GoPro, to hand forged iron railings and fire screens for homes, our work explores and defies the boundaries of metalwork. Our willingness to challenge limits enables us to make exciting discoveries in our chosen medium.

Handbags and paintings

My hand-printed bags are structured layers and patterns that were created to be carried around downtown for weekend strolls, but set a distinctive statement in the office that is fresh and unique. Growing up and living in the Appalachian, Blue Ridge valley and inspired by Japanese culture, my designs are simple, fluid, and mindful.

Art

Howdy! My name is Kristen and I like to make things. I am currently making peaceful acrylic paintings, pointed mixed media pieces, and quirky technicolor watercolor illustrations. These three styles come tumbling out depending on my mood which usually can be summed up by: let’s chill out and debate in acrylics, resist! we gotta do something about politics in mixed media, and let’s have fun and be weird together in watercolors. Ever feel like this? Then you’re in good company - Enjoy!

One-of-a-kind functional art from discarded book covers

I make room divider screens, mirror and picture frames, boxes, etc. decorated with hardback book covers, also original art. I use discarded book covers to create one-of-a-kind functional and decorative pieces. I also offer studio time for use of a 12"x12" steel rule die cutter. Instead of unwanted hardback books ending up in landfills, I thought "why not upcycle them into art?" I make 2-D and functional book cover art using knives, paper cutters, and steel rule dies.

Woven and textile art and oil paintings

While traveling in Morocco I was inspired by its ancient textile traditions. I learned to sew while there and have since taught myself to weave on a variety of looms, some custom made. My works are sold as wall hangings, blankets, rugs, or made-to-order commissions. All are composed of natural fibers. On my site I also sell handmade Moroccan goods including textile, leather, and ceramics sourced from responsible organizations.

Chaser And Burk Custom Furniture

Mid Century Modern Custom Furniture and Home Goods

My passion for woodworking was realized when I made a simple shelf for my wife in 2013. Soon after I began obsessively learning everything I could woodworking and furniture design. I got a job at a small commercial furniture shop that made rustic style furniture as I began to build my own business on the side. I grew more and more fascinated with Mid Century Modern design and 2 years later I finally took the plunge and quit that job to start my own business. Since then I have developed deep relationships with my clients as we worked closely together to design and build furniture that met their practical needs and gave their house a touch of comfort and beauty.

I use the highest quality locally sourced hardwoods and time tested building techniques to provide my clients with heirloom quality furniture and home furnishings that they can cherish for a lifetime. I believe in taking the time to make things the right way, even if it's not the easiest, and I stand behind the products that I make.

Satisfaction guaranteed, every time.
