OPENING RECEPTION FOR JESSICA SCHLEGEL

Based out of Salisbury, Maryland, Jessica L. Schlegel is a watercolor artist who delves into the world around her. Growing up on the Eastern Shore, Jessica fell in love with the array of landscapes and wildlife in such a small area. She travels around the Eastern Shore and other areas within Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, searching for the beauty within them.
Jessica received her BFA from Salisbury University and her MAT from University of Maryland Eastern Shore. After teaching art for 7 years, she refocused her life in order to pursue her art career. She now creates her art work full time, focusing on her watercolor and acrylic paintings, along with craft items like hand painted glasses that are sold in several local shops.

Patricia (Trish) Kotzen entered the art world only within the last few years. Although always interested in various forms of art, her career left her little time to pursue her other interests. Trish worked for the Department of the Navy as a civilian in Washington, D.C., Virginia, Hawaii, and Maryland. She also traveled extensively, which gave her the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful and exotic sights in the world, always with a camera in her bag.
