Cork-based artist and upcycler Jessica Baron will be showcasing her work at Art Source this week - alongside 200 Irish and international artists and galleries.

RESOURCEFUL is the word that comes to mind to describe professional artist and champion of the circular economy, Jessica Baron.

Originally from Quebec in Canada, she came to Ireland because of an Irish man to whom she is now married. They have two children, Saskia, 12, and Liam, 10. They lived in Dublin for a few years but were on the look-out to move to Munster.

“The dramatic west coast attracted us,” says Jessica in a Cork accent, despite her roots. The couple moved to Ballydesmond nearly 12 years ago. They bought an old farmhouse, more than 150 years old, which they will be doing up “forever more”.
