Welcome to the online portfolio of visual artist, Jessie Couzelis.
I am an interdisciplinary artist from Vancouver, Canada and have been travelling throughout Europe and North Africa for the past year. Currently back in Canada with plans to exhibit in Los Angeles and journey to Mexico, my recent work is inspired by the freedom and spontaneity of my nomadic lifestyle. This is reflected in the freestyle compositions of my abstract mixed media paintings; I employ layers of paint, collage and textural applications to create artwork that is both autobiographical and fantastical. Apart from painting and exhibiting, I teach art classes to youth and adults and am exploring work in participatory installation, video and poetry.
My work can be found in private and corporate collections.
