Jessica Earhart (she/her/hers) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Pittsburgh, PA. Collage is her primary medium, where she finds satisfaction in its impulsivity, limitations, and as an expressive way to problem solve. She creates art as a means to understand the human experience addressing feminist themes through surrealism. Her work has consisted of both stand alone pieces and series, as well as zines and comics. She has exhibited at the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art, Short Run Seattle, Toronto Comic Arts Festival, and Bethesda, MD Small Press Expo. She is the Art and Design Editor for a feminist quarterly journal, Pretty Owl Poetry.
Her ongoing project, Khloris, is a fantasy comic series made both analogue and digital collage art. The story is about the goddess of flowers and her demi-goddess friends who all possess the power of Chroma, a positive force in the universe that makes everything beautiful and bright. They use their flower power to dismantle the patriarchy and make the galaxy a better place. Best American Comics featured Khloris issue 2 in the 2018 Notable Comics list and issue 3 in the 2019 Notable Comics list. Issue 4 will debut in Spring 2020.
Jessica is passionate about mindfulness and self care which she explores in her project PEAK, a collage series and zine released in May 2018. When she doesn't have an x-acto knife in her hand, she can be found practicing yoga, experimenting with botanicals, reading tarot, or baking up a storm.
