I create custom art plush toys from my original pattern and surface designs
Jess Mick grew up in the Pacific Northwest, enjoying the outdoors. They discovered a love for sewing and realized they could bring to life all of the fantastical creatures they loved as a child. They have been sewing since their mom handed them a scrap of fleece, a needle and thread when Jess three years old. Their childhood love of soft toys has carried through to become present in their main art practice, creating fun and functional forms of art and craft. They run their small custom plush toy business full-time, creating new creature designs almost monthly.
Jess’s art practice is materials-based, she spends many hours researching and experimenting to find the right way to use different types of fabrics. In her pieces she uses everything from plush minky fabric to rough wool felt. She taught herself to pattern-draft in her senior year of high school and has continued to refine her techniques to create sellable plush toys and fine art soft sculpture.
