About the Artist

Californian artist Jessica Dalva completed her art studies in 2009 with a focus on illustration. Since then she has been involved in painting and sculpture, sewing theatre costumes, in stage design, stop motion animation and puppetry. Jessica is constantly on the lookout for new challenges and experiences and has already created a diverse and impressive oeuvre. Jessica’s mother, also a sculptor, introduced her to the secrets of the art form as a child and is still the artist’s greatest role model today. Most of Jessica’s works are made of Super Sculpey Polymer Clay, with a variety of additional materials, such as vintage ephemera, fabric, mohair, beads, and found objects. She is adept at developing authentic gestural forms of expression and exaggerating the realism of her sculptures with distorted or repetitive details.
