Jenessa Goodman is a NYC ex-pat who relocated to Encinitas, California in 2011. Though she was born in San Diego and raised in California and New Mexico, her many years of traveling and living in a wide variety of locales has colored the lens through which she views life today. Jenessa's work is an intelligent, thoughtful and emotionally sophisticated exploration of contemporary art. She delves deep into the pattern language of nature, seeking visual rhythms and elegant shapes. Her striking imagery highlights the abstract in nature, and the esoteric within the familiar.

Born in 1979, Jenessa attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The San Francisco Art Institute. She is the founder of the Peace Poster Project, a fundraising effort for charitable causes. Jenessa lives in Encinitas with her family.
