Jess Polanshek – Polanshek of the Hills

b. 1991

Welcome to my little woodland studio and thanks for taking a peek at my work! I've been creating art for my illustration business - Polanshek of the Hills - since 2013 in the hills of Vermont. Focusing on high detail and loose realism, my work has evolved into an illustrative and whimsical style with a strong focus on the beauty and intricacies of the natural world. I work in pen and watercolor on paper and have an unwavering obsession with northern forests and the creatures that inhabit them. 

Find me on instagram @polanshek for daily posts about current works-in-progress, nature, my studio dogs and other random bits.
