Jessica Higo Walbridge is our Satellite Artist. Jess is not in residence at YAH, but on our website and social media. She is a master crocheter whose intention is “to bring ‘women’s work’ into a fine art setting” with her references to monster and powerful women. She has made her body of work by morphing classical concepts, feminist undertones, and monstrous themes into unexpected fiber pieces.





Week 1

Hi, I am currently working on daily ink drawings for #inktober, a bunch of small items for sale, and just finished up some works for the DLG show: Visions of the Apocalypse 2 opening 10/13 at 8pm at DLG. Link to the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/530060674120330/ Some of my work shown will be a large crocheted dragon head (work in progress images included) and some halloween themed huggable items like the jackolantern bigfoots (images included) and crocheted ghosts.

Week 2

Hi, I am still working on daily ink illustrations for #inktober, I am hoping to be able to convert some of these small images into fabric patches for sale. Additionally, I'm still working on making some smalls for sale. I've recently gathered a bunch of new material for works for the January show and some smalls for the holidays. Some of my work is currently on display at DLG's current show: Visions of the Apocalypse 2.

Week 3

H I am still working on daily ink illustrations for #inktober and working on some smalls for sale. I just recently started making my own custom patches! I've attached a video of how I convert my illustrations to patch patterns and an image of some of my current smalls, and a new patch! Some of my work is currently on display at YAH's current exhibition and DLG's current show: Visions of the Apocalypse 2. Some of my smaller pieces are for sale at DV8 in Greensburg and always through my social media.

Week 4

Hi! This week INKTOBER has officially ended and my focus has now switched from making illustrations to transforming them into patches and I've dedicated to working towards the off the wall show starting in late November. In preparation of the show I've made the largest crew of elves I have ever made, they'll be looking for their forever homes at YAH. Aside from these guys there will be some cuddly bigfoots and yetis as well as a bunch of ~mystery~ buddies that might make appearances in future blog updates.

Week 5

Hi, Yesterday was the first yarn circle at YAH and I thought it was wonderful! I’m very excited to see what we can come together and put out into the community, and it is also so wonderful to be in a creative environment! Aside from the yarn circle, I have moved into full gear to create items for the YAH off the wall show. As of now I have a small clutch of baby bigfoots, octopi, elves, and other creatures looking for their forever homes. I have also been working on some surprises for the fiber art exhibition in January at YAH. for more updates, to order an item, or to see some of my past items check out my Instagram @jessicahigo or my Facebook @ Facebook.com/jessicahigoart
