Jessica Zoob trained at Central School of Art and at Nottingham University, during which time she travelled extensively, spending time on research in China and exploring other parts of Indonesia.


For seven years after graduating, she worked as a theatre designer at countless venues including the Bristol Old Vic, the Royal National Theatre and Greenwich Theatre. Jessica has worked exclusively as a British contemporary artist from her Lewes home and studio since the year 2000. She exhibits regularly in and around London and has works in private collections worldwide. Recent commissions include works for The Lancasters on Hyde Park, a palace in Dubai and NEO Bankside on the South Bank.


In 2013, Jessica started a collaborative project with renowned textile company Romo and its Black Edition design house. The project has seen Jessica’s designs taken across the globe, with pattern Big Smile winning the Elle Decoration British Design Award for Best British Pattern in November 2014.


In addition to private commissions and high-profile collaborations, Jessica has also had major collections shown at esteemed locations across London such as at Rove Gallery, the Art Antiques Fair and Medici Gallery. Jessica joined Loughran Gallery in 2013 with her landmark solo exhibition Dancing With Colour, which was held at a bespoke riverside location in Battersea. The critically-acclaimed collection marked Jessica Zoob as one of the most exciting British artists to watch, leading to her second solo exhibition, Playtime, with Loughran Gallery at their exclusive Belgravia space in 2015.


Jessica’s travels to China, Indonesia and beyond are continual inspirations in her painting method, with the landscape surrounding her Sussex home acting as a constant muse.
