Bio: Jessi Sites is a lifer when it comes to creating. She has followed her nose to dabble in oil painting, resin, cement molds, woodworking, furniture refinishing and plaster sculpture. During the slow days of Covid a friend said “have you seen this paint pouring thing?” She scoffed at yet another project but watched a few videos and was hooked.
