Jessica Just is a Texas based artist and photographer who received her BFA from Baylor University and her MFA from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Many of her interests lie in various facets and manipulations of the past, and how it affects objects, tradition, outlook, identity, and memory. Mining through familial objects, photographs, and stories present a myriad of fascinating opportunities for new narratives and reinterpretations. Her work has been exhibited nationally, and can be found in Private collections across Texas. She currently lives in Waco, TX and is an Assistant Professor of Art at Temple College.
In addition to teaching and art making, Jessica also regularly speaks at conferences, and sits on the board of the Texas Photographic Society. You can find her cooking new meals, at the dog park, or planning her next adventure when she is not making photographs or teaching her students.
