My name is Jessica Coates, the owner of CreatedByJessicaC. I am a local pebble & metal artist from Madison, WI. I am a mother to three amazing young men, and a wife to my best friend, who is very supportive of my passion to create unique art pieces. I love to use my creativity to design a piece that is original. I started metal art when my Father-In-Law introduced me to a handheld plasma cutter. We had many fun times together coming up with new sketches to cut. My Father-In-Law passed away in 2015, cutting metal reminds me of him and also reminds me that I should never take for granted even the little memories you make with the ones you love. I started to create pebble art when my Mother-In-Law came back from Lake Michigan with a pile of flat pebbles. I saw so many things when I looked at the pebbles that I just started creating art pieces. I have met people all across the world in my search for pebbles. I now have friends in Latvia, Italy, Scotland, Ireland, California and Pennsylvania that walk the beaches to find some of the pieces I use. I’m hoping you’ll see something that you would like to purchase, or would like to have re-created or personalized. I have done many special orders and would love to help your vision become a piece of art! I’d love to create YOUR story!
