This is a digital collage of my own photography and images licensed under the creative commons, entitled Hjärta. It was made upon my return to the US following a semester studying in Uppsala, Sweden, which was very much a sacred and important place for me, and instrumental to my personal development. 


JESSICA THWAITE is a recent graduate of the University of Maryland with a B.A. in English and a minor in creative writing. She only realized at the eleventh hour that her heart was in design, and has spent her last semester before graduating making art out of feelings she doesn't know how to talk about with words and adopting a cautious optimism about the future.
