The self-taught artist is also the founding member and singer of such seminal indie rock bands Jack Off Jill and scarling. Jessicka will be also be releasing her first limited edition print, and Scarling's "Who Wants To Die For Art?"

Lori Nelson is a Utahn living in New York City going on ten years now. She paints in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn and maneuvers her bike through the cobblestone streets, under and around the cathedral bases of the massive Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. Lori loves to stand on the edge of the East River to see what has been hauled up out of the giant old garbage dump deep under the grey ribbon of water; one hundred year old china shards, rounded off factory bricks, chickenwire glass....New Yorkers of yestercentury, she is examining your refuse.
