Jessica Waterman utilizes both wood and textiles, combining two materials she feels best reflect the character of Newfoundland and Labrador, Finding inspirations in town settings and wilderness alike, Waterman's colour schemes range from bright and joyful, not unlike the row houses of St. John's; to solemn yet powerful, similar to the natural environment of Gros Morne.
In creating her work, Waterman blends carpentry with art. Her pieces add to a rooms appearance but in many cases also fill a tangible, practical function.
A carpenter by trade, Gander born Waterman has also completed costume design from Dalhousie University and textile design from NASCAD, both located in Halifax Nova Scotia.
Besides spending her time in her St. John's Design Studio, Jessica works in film and television as a costume designer, props procurer, and art director for various productions including CBC television's Republic of Doyle, Netflix' "Frontier", and NL Tourism award winning marketing campaigns.
