Artist Jessica Sarah Beach’s digital drawings reveal poetic whispers that offer hope and encouragement. See more of her work on her website.
My art is inspired by my faith and my inner pensive ploddings.
Within the meads of my mind, there are people. It is beyond my mask of flesh that one would find Vincent Van Gogh, Sylvia Plath, Matthew Arnold, Robyn Davidson, Percy Shelley and Walt Whitman, who is yawping. These people have taught me that you don’t have to be a paragon to truly live, and that it doesn’t take an idiot to be stupid.
It’s the works done in their life that have whispered to me, as if from the dust, “Carpe Diem!” And so, drawing always has been a part of my life; it has been my way of answering my friends’ whispers.
Thus far, I’ve learned that the compulsory measures to astronaut custodial comfort in my life are found through art, especially in creating it.
Through digital illustration, I strive to guide others to hope, crossing my fingers that whoever looks upon my work will hear that same pricking whispering of “Carpe Diem.”

Beyond my own life’s mileage of drawing, I attended two semesters at Southern Virginia University, studying within their Art and Design Program. There was a lot of mirth found in that miserable condensed mileage, and such mirth nipped my measly meandering, artistically speaking, and deepened dreams of becoming an artist.
The style I’ve incrementally fallen into stems from a season of my life when a greedy grief’s growth garnished my every waking minute.
A sort of collage-like journaling helped me gain a grip on such grief. It gainfully allowed the season to do as it meant to do all along—reveal a new expansiveness within me.
The collage-like journaling replicated the garnishing of that grief. Within my journal I embellished cursive thoughts with drawings.
My style now does this in a similar way—I love to embellish poetic ideas and thoughts through delicate details that evoke motion and that ultimately echo the whisperings of my friends.
