    Artist/Instructor Bio

    Jessica Fairweather is a Chilliwack based glass mosaic artist & instructor, & owner/operator of JFairWStudios. Creating mosaics from glass is a unique art form that Jessica has spent the last 20 years refining. She also creates mosaic commissions for businesses, private collectors & special occasion gifts.

    Jessica has always been fascinated by colour & contrasting colour combinations. She hand-selects glass of all densities, shimmers & patterns to create mosaics that are uniquely hers. She can make snow that glistens, the most delicate flowers, or winds & waves on a stormy day at the beach.

    Jessica's work reflects the world around her & the beauty found in our own backyard here in B.C.
