Jessica Bosworth Smith is a visual artist and illustrator based in Cape Town, South Africa. She is interested in the exploration of the multidimensional field of illustration; from the development of narrative works to research-driven contemporary art pieces. Jessica has an experimental approach to her work and process plays a large role in her creative development. Her work often uses alternative psychology and magical realist theory as a starting point for her explorations of themes of the uncanny, memory, and liminality. Earlier this year she was part of the ComicBlast residency at the¬†Arteles Creative Center, Finland, and has recently published her first children’s book, The Straw Giant & The Crow, with Imagnary House.¬†
