Jessica Bonds was born in Sandpoint Idaho, grew up in the wild forests of the Panhandle area, and lived in Arkansas during some of her teen years. Jessica has been weaving baskets and exploring photography since age 15. She won several gallery awards at age 16. Since then she has sold baskets and photography through art fairs and gift shops.
“Both my parents are very artistic and encouraged me in all of my many interests whether that was photography, sewing, calligraphy, miniature castle building or basket weaving.
My husband has also been a constant support and fellow creator with me. Sometimes he is searching for the best handle or he is dropping a chunk of ice on a rock for the 10th time so I can get that one picture!
Through the years of dabbling and growing I’ve really settled into weaving antler and driftwood baskets. There is something special about taking in God’s creation, working with the colors, textures, and movement, and seeing what He lets me create .
