A graduate of John Donaldson Technical Institute, Kessa has been a Graphic Artist for 13 years. Having worked for advertising agencies and graphic design companies Kessa has earned her share of experience in the industry.
With this skill and experience, she eventually accumulated her own clientele. In 2006 Kessa (& her business partner) decided to embark on a business – Dragonfly Studios. Her at-home studio still offers graphic design services for print media.
Through her father Victor, the (deceased) owner of a concrete product business, she became involved in that industry and began to offer Mosaics made of glass tiles depicting fishes, dolphins, seahorses, flowers and other scenery for homeowner’s pools and general contractors.
Her goal is to produce easy to install and ready to purchase Mosaics off the shelf in a myriad designs. She hopes to develop Dragonfly Studios to become a fully operational factory, able to offer employment and give artists the opportunity to use their skills to produce beautiful tile artwork on a daily basis.
She also looks forward to the opportunity to create murals in commercial buildings and in landmark locations in communities to demonstrate the durability of tile work in its varied possibilities and applications as inspirations to the observer.
Currently Kessa is exploring Mosaics, watercolor paintings and mixed media and is experimenting with the variations of her art in order to reach a wider audience.
