Jessie Edwards-Thomas

Jessie Edwards-Thomas (born 1991) is a visual artist based in Britain. She originates from Snowdonia, North Wales. Her artistic practise explores the individual through gender, mental health and the individual's placement within society.  Jessie’s work focuses on the individual’s need for belonging within the constructs of society. She uses the relationship between the photographer and the sitter to investigate these ideas as part of the image.

Her current practise explores key themes surrounding symbols and structure, identity, power and connection through storytelling.
