About the Artist

Jessamine Toste

Since I was born, art has been a part of my life. My mother is an accomplished artist, so my development as a painter as well as the artistic genes, is something I inherited.

It is very difficult to express myself with words.  I have always shown my feelings through my artwork.  If you put all my work chronologically, you will have a giant colorful diary of my life.  My paintings are autobiographical in nature.

Love is essential for my well-being, I need to love and be loved. So, it has been a theme in most of my paintings. The theme of nature has manifested itself in my paintings through the deity Daphne.  She represents a mythological  woman who was transformed into a tree for not loving a man. Since my first artworks Daphne has appeared and she keeps coming up.  In many of my paintings you can see "eyes", those eyes are the windows of the soul and a reference to God.

I use color boldly and freely, each of my brushstrokes are put with passion and force.  The colors usually reflect the beautiful colors of my Island. There are some paintings that are more sober, these reflect my state of mind at the time.  Mood swings have been a part of my life.  Through art I have been able to keep my life in balance.

I invite you to look at my paintings and learn more about me. I hope you enjoy them and that love will always be part of your life.
