For Jessica Person, her love for art is ongoing.

White Bear Lake Area High School 2020 graduate Jessica Person gave a nod to the past with her intriguing piece, Carrier Bird, which she created in her art class last year.

“I struggled a bit to come up with an idea for this project, but ended up connecting it to how people say ‘on the wire’ to refer to having a telephone conversation,” she says. “Then, I tied it back in with a bird by having the bird be a carrier pigeon, or a bird meant to send messages, representing old and obsolete forms of communication.”

And for Person, her love for art is ongoing.

“Art has always been, and always will be, a constant presence in my life,” she says. “It’s something you can always find time for, and it’s so easy to just pick up a pencil and start doodling whatever comes to mind.”
