Jessica Valoris is an interdisciplinary artist and community facilitator. Weaving together mixed media painting, sound collage, and ritual performance, Jessica creates sacred spaces that activate local histories, ancestral wisdom, personal reflection, and community care.
Inspired by the earth-based traditions of her Black American and Jewish ancestry, Jessica explores ideas through the lens of metaphysics, spirituality, and Afrofuturism. She uses art as a catalyst for collective healing and transformative well-being.
