About the artist
Jess began creating work in 2005, first exhibiting her work in 2008 predominantly under the pseudonym 23rd Key, she creates photo-realistic stencils and hand painted works. She has a background studying in Printmaking, Graphic Design, Audio Engineering and Architecture, and in recent years has adapted to installing and hand painting large scale mural works without the use of stencils.
I grew up in Albert Park, undertaking primary school in the area and only moving away for a few years, as I now live in St Kilda. I've spent more time living, working and plying in City of Port Phillip than any other municipality in the state, essentially growing up here.
