About the artist
Jessi Dahlquist is an urban pop artist in her hometown of Huntington Beach, California. Jessi's artwork is loud, bold, and colorful as she encourages others to live lives that are loud, bold, and colorful. She studied at the Milan Art Institute and now works from her beachside studio as a professional artist.
Jessi Dahlquist's story is a story of transformation; transformation from dark to light and from depression to color! Afraid of being herself in her early years, Jessi later turned to drugs and was a heroin addict for seven years before getting clean and becoming who she is today. She now believes that God created everyone with a purpose and a destiny. Her goal is to encourage others to live the colorful life that was designed for them and to go after their bold dreams. Jessi's art expresses just that - with bright energetic color, bold subjects, and empowering messaging, her art changes the atmosphere of every room that it hangs in.
Jessi's joy is now painting in her studio just minutes from the ocean, moving towards her goal of being in galleries from Laguna Beach to Los Angeles. Jessi is married to her husband, Jordan Dahlquist, and is a mother of two young children who enjoy being homeschooled and creating art alongside their mom.
