Jess Sepko

Where did you grow up?
My birthplace is  
Tullahoma, TN aka "the rising star" but I grew up in  Lowell, IN or "Chicagoland-ish". 

Where is home now?
Winona Lake, IN

Who do you live with?
Me, myself, and I. And I love it. 

What does your work space sound like?
Typically a nice mixture of the bass from my neighbor's movie, soft music and the sound of my pencil or paint brush. 

Who is your favorite artist?
I love the illustrator Rebecca Guay.

What inspires you?
I am very inspired by stories. I love fairytales and legends, so books are huge for me. Besides that, I am inspired by natural beauty and animals, and a lot of the time simply by being around other creative or interesting people. 

What is your favorite piece you have created for Bel Kai?
So far I'd say I love the look of my hot air balloon design. But I'm most proud of my fox. 

If you weren't  creating art, what would your dream profession be?
I think it would be awesome to be a talent agent... Or a professional gamer, specializing in Nintendo and Pokemon. 

What is your favorite snack?
Mac and cheese bites

How would your best friend describe you?
Ambitious, artistic, eager and active in pursuing goals, determined, confident, and extremely awkward yet hilarious and loyal - These are actual quotes from my friends TJ and Shelby. :) 

Is there anything else we must know?
Making people laugh, music, and traveling all make me happier than just about anything else. My goal in life is to see the Sea of Stars and become good at yoga. My favorite actor is Colin Firth, and I live off of coffee and Red Bull.
