About The Artist - Jussara Davis. Jussara Davis' passion for painting started early in her life while living in her beautiful homeland Brazil. After moving to Portugal, in Europe, and while working in her two Dental Offices, she had the chance to participate in workshops and take oil painting classes, working closely with artists from France, Spain, and Italy. Her first subjects were abstracts and landscapes, and soon she moved on to still life.
In 1999, after many years working as a Dentist, she moved to the USA and married her husband, Jack. They both went to the Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, where Jack graduated as an Electronics Engineer, and Jussara took classes in the Visual Arts department. Oil is her favorite medium, but she also enjoys painting with acrylic and watercolor. Besides painting, Jussara also works with drawing and photography, and she has a Certificate Diploma in Graphic Design.
Due to her recent problems with chronic neck pain, she's not able to keep painting full time, but she'll carry it as her favorite activity for as long as she lives, for in her opinion painting is more than just a hobby. It's a meaning through which she can express her inner-self, her perception of things, as well as a fulfillment of her dreams and a way to keep her mind's creativity alive and active.
Jussara graduated in December/2006 from the New York Institute of Technology - Ellis College, with a Major in Behavioral Sciences, and she is now an active volunteer at WAPD working as a non-professional Counselor. Her plans for the future include a Major in Clinical Counseling Psychology to be started in 2007.
Most of her art work has been sold in Portugal, Spain and Brazil, where she recently found inspiration for her Floral Paintings.
