Last week I completed a mural along the Long Branch trail in Winston-Salem, NC. It was a real pleasure to paint outdoors with passing runners, walkers and cyclists giving me words of encouragement and approval.
The mural is 50-feet long and varies in height from 6’2″ to 7’6″. The project was commissioned by Innovation Quarter.

My billboard is up! Conveniently, the billboard is located off of Route 52 at exit 112, so for my Triad friends, you can go hiking at Pilot Mountain, then see my billboard inspired by that very mountain as you drive back toward Winston Salem. The paintings on the billboard are from my exhibit last fall at Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA), featuring views inspired by Pilot Mountain State Park.
I installed some paintings at Piedmont Triad International, my local airport last week. Here are some photos from the installation. Thanks to the team at the airport, it turned out great!
The large paintings are inspired by my time on Pilot Mountain and were featured in my exhibit at SECCA in 2019. The two smaller ones are from my Forces of Nature series. While they are up at the airport, they are still available for purchase from the Outside Collection in my web shop.
I am honored to share with you that my work was chosen for ArtPop this year and will be featured on billboards around the Triad region. Here’s the press release from the Art Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County.
The billboard features 3 paintings from my exhibition at Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) from last fall: “I must love you very much.”
Mindful Monday with Jessica Singerman Monday, May 11, 2020 | 10 am
Join us and gallery artist Jessica Singerman for a special “Mindful Monday” on Instagram. In addition to guiding us through a hands-on art exercise, she’ll discuss her current “new normal” during the pandemic as an artist, a teacher and a mother, and tips for staying grounded during these uncertain times. A great mid-morning art break for anyone working, teaching or learning at home!

In the 2019 exhibition Beyond the Mountain, Jessica’s paintings surrounded her impressive Paper Mountain installation composed of 1,000 hand-folded origami cranes.
I’m super excited to announce the launch of my first online workshop Little Watercolor Square! This is my most popular class available for the first time in digital form for you to enjoy wherever and whenever you are.
If you are starting from scratch, if you have some experience and want to learn more, or you’re trying to rekindle your art practice, this is for you. In the workshop, you’ll learn how to use watercolors, how to mix beautiful colors, and how to make a vibrant watercolor painting using geometric abstraction. This is a very practical workshop that will give you tools you can take to continue making artworks wherever you are. You’ll learn how to paint mindfully, for relaxation and enjoyment.
The workshop is inspired by a daily project I made a few years ago when I made a small watercolor painting each day for a year. The paintings were inspired by the poetry of nature: color and light in the landscape, seasons, and the passing of time. It was a kind of meditation for me and it led to making my book of watercolors.
The class is available to purchase for two weeks, but you’ll have lifetime access to the class materials so you can review whenever you want. You’ll also be invited to join the private Facebook group where you can meet your classmates, share your work, ask questions and get feedback.
