Jessthechen is an emerging artist from Sydney, and she has been drawing ever since she could hold a crayon. Jess draws inspiration from her Chinese heritage, Japanese aesthetics and culture, space and galaxies, women, animals, and nature. Plus, she’s just a little bit obsessed with watercolour, and dotting stars and sparkles with a white paint pen.

She creates a range of handmade products from prints and stickers to cool and funky zines. All printed and handmade locally within her little home studio, with materials sought and bought in Australia.

Recently though, she has started to sought manufacturers overseas to help her create bigger things like tote bags and shirts, so everyone can wear her designs.  

Find Jessthechen on Instagram and meet Jess at our market on Saturday 2 April at the Marrickville Town Hall.
