Jessie Nickerson

Artist and Illustrator 

   Jessie Nickerson’s love of art began at age 4, when she decided to embellish her family’s walls with crayon “murals” and has been a life-long pursuit ever since.

     She received her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art in 2000 and went on to Parsons School of Design to earn her MFA in 2003. She has studied at the Museum School in Boston and at the Reitweld Academy in Amsterdam.


     Nickerson’s illustrations and surreal images are inspired by fairy tales, elements of nature, and daydreams. She exhibits her work throughout the Cape, the South Coast and the Greater Boston area.  She resides on Cape Cod where the sea continues to provide her with inspiration.
