Jesse McMaster

August 18, 2011

This month we’re featuring art by local artist Jesse McMaster in the café. What I like about the collection is that it’s three very separate mediums: watercolor, multimedia and papercuts. They each have their own unique feel and texture and look. For me it’s interesting to see an artist express themselves in diverse ways.

On display this month, we have a set of watercolor paintings inspired by river stones; a series of papercuts on painted wood panels; and, several mixed media pieces inspired by animal and plant cells.

Jesse is an art teacher who lives in Nashua. An early start in a dance studio led her to her passion for working with watercolors, clay, textiles and acrylics, and pretty much anything she can get her hands on.

Jesse received her B.A in Visual Arts from Bradford College in 1997 and a M.Ed in 2009 from Rivier College.

Here’s how she describes her work: “I am inspired first and foremost by everything that is around me. I am constantly sketching in my sketchbook, where some ideas evolve into bigger bodies of work.  The subject matter in this show varies from watercolor studies of river stones, to mixed media using gouache and yarn depicting animal and plant cells, to Asian art influenced wood panels with paper cut overlays.”

The next time you’re in for a cup of coffee or tea, swing into the sitting area to check out her work.
