Growing up in a rural area of Midwest Ohio, Jessica Flick was always surrounded by the warmth of a creative family. Her favorite childhood memories are spending time together simply making things. Building doll furniture from wood in her grandfather's wood shop, sculpting in clay in their family owned ceramic shop or sewing charming dolls from scraps of fabric that floated around her mother’s sewing room filled her days with pure delight. Determined to make art her profession, Jessica attended and graduated from the Art Academy of Cincinnati with a BFA and started her career as a graphic designer and illustrator. She quickly realized her passion for gift ware and began working toward creating her own product lines that incorporate some of her favorite styles.
