Jess Earhart (they/them) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Pittsburgh, PA. Collage is their primary medium, where they find satisfaction in its impulsivity, limitations, and as an expressive way to problem solve. They have always felt a deep need to channel their experiences into something tangible. Jess views collage as a ritual of surrender that allows them to tune into their intuition.
Their work focuses on nature, radical self love, healing trauma and the unknown, and has consisted of stand alone pieces, series, zines, and comics. They have exhibited at the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art, Short Run Seattle, Toronto Comic Arts Festival, and Bethesda, MD Small Press Expo. Their ongoing project, Khloris, a fantasy comic series made both analogue and digital collage art, was featured in Best American Comics 2018 and 2019 Notable Comics Lists.
When they don’t have a pair of scissors in hand, they can be found practicing yoga, reading tarot, climbing mountains, or baking up a storm.
