artist bio

Jessica Laub is primarily a self-taught artist who works in a variety of media and is currently focused in ceramics, mosaics and painting. Her artistic style, characterized by a bold use of color and a strong sense of line, celebrates the beauty and wonder she encounters in the world around her. Jessica uses clay to create sgraffito-style dishware, sculptural forms, and handmade tile that she pairs with stained glass, glitter, mirrors and other shiny tesserae in her mosaic work. In addition to smaller-scale interior mosaics, Jessica creates larger works intended for installation outdoors in yards and gardens. She enjoys making site-specific mosaic installations in both two and three dimensions. Her art is influenced by time spent living in Central America, her appreciation of nature and her ongoing spiritual exploration. Jessica works with clay and tile at her Toy Factory studio located in Milwaukee’s Riverworks district, but most often paints and draws at her dining room table or in her garden. She was an artist in residence at RedlLine Milwaukee from 2010 through 2013 and is a frequent collaborator with Artists Working in Education.
