Jessica Graybill was born in Santa Barbara, California and grew up on the islands of Maui and the Big Island. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of her surroundings, with an emphasis on organic shapes and vibrant earth tones.

Her 2012 series of bronze succulent sculptures, each hand-sculpted from wax and cast in bronze has been well-received and exhibited in various Southern California galleries. All of these have since landed in private collections throughout the US and Mexico.

Currently, Jessica is focused on creating functional art for the home in the form of handmade ceramic vessels and ritual objects which can be viewed and purchased from MamaCoyote.com. In the not-so-distant future, she hopes to migrate to the Mojave desert, a location that has long energized and influenced her creativity.
