My name is Jessica Yi Newsome.
I've lived in Nicholasville, KY my whole life. Strange and beautiful Kentucky is the only home I've ever known. I have two children and the most amazing and supportive husband. Beyond Sight is our branding name that also includes all my artwork. I make essential oil anointing sprays, wire wrapped crystal/gemstone jewelry and other absolutely random crafts that include runes, feathers, resin, animal bones and furs, ceramics and more that you can find here on the website.
I draw, paint, sculpt, carve, sew, and create digital art. I do photography and editing, even some cosmetology and special effects make up. Everything is art and art is everything to me. There's a lot of common ground in art despite the differences in all of us around the world. For me, it's the beauty of your creation, the emotions, the finished creation, how it will translate to others or how it might change someone. Art is each individual's perspective and their own unique reality. What you create is just physical representation of what's inside you and what your world looks like. To spill it all out on a piece of paper, a sculpture, a song, for the whole world to see and experience is bold.
It's not going to look like someone else's. It's not going to be wrong or right. I wasted a lot of time when I should have dove into art head first long ago. I did a lot of learning, as all humans do. But no regrets! Mistakes are necessary. I am who I am today and that's all there is to it. Still forever growing and adjusting. I can only try to be there for people who need what I'm able to give and to help people make deeper connections with their selves in every way and realize they can be whoever they want! I want to create honest connections and new beautiful art with crazy brilliant people. I will ask questions, see as much as I can, and embrace change and chaos. I plan to enjoy the life I'm creating and make as much of a racket about it while I'm here!
