The Artress, Jai Raines, was born in Rancho Cordova CA and raised in Missouri. She was always drawn to the bright colors and beauty around her. Confident in her artistic skills even at a young age. From the very first art set to the beat up old desk that gave her life at the age of 5, she always found peace in drawing.

 

During her younger years, she visualized her life as an art teacher, but as college approached she entered into Stephens College Columbia MO as a fashion design major. In that journey, Jackie found herself more attracted to the idea of the human body and how it moves. Thanks to one professor, who she butted heads with for much of her freshman year, she fell in love with the emotion of body language and the stories that could be told from the way your body speaks. With the help of this teacher, she developed a style of her own and found the Artress in her.

In 2013 Jackie entered back in to college pursuing a major in psychology. When you are so very interested in emotion and understanding ways to heighten and enlighten yourself and others, you tend to be drawn to the educational side of all things in the universe. In 2016 she gained a BA in Psychology and has begun to incorporate her life coaching into her art. Through things like Artress Therapy and Artress Corner, she gives advice and shares knowledge of how to improve yourself.

Art is life to the Artress and life should be shared. Welcome to the new life.
