Artist and jewelry designer, Jessica Galbreth was born on April 29th, 1974 in Ohio. She studied fine art at the University of Toledo for several years, and has been a professional artist since 1999.
Specializing in paintings and drawings, Jessica has seen her art translated into many items for the gift market, including figurines, greeting cards, calendars and books.
In 2010, Jessica retired her old body of work, feeling it no longer fit with who she was. As a Christian, she set out to shine her light with a new body of angel and inspirational art created with both traditional mediums and digital collage techniques. She also began to learn the craft of jewelry making, with a focus on vintage and Victorian inspired designs.
Her line of jewelry became so popular, her husband Josh joined her in the art of making the artisan jewelry found at The Vintage Angel. Now she and Josh spend most of their time crafting jewelry for orders, bending metal and fastening crystals, with Jessica stealing away at times to paint in her art room overlooking the big sky country of their Waterville, Ohio home. The Vintage Angel jewelry and accessories have been a part of fashion shoots, featured in blogs, and her customers and collectors are from all parts of the world.

---Now that my formal bio is out of the way, I want to say hello and thank you for taking the time to read more about me and my work. In addition to being a jewelry artist and painter, I'm a mom, a wife, an animal lover and a child of God. I prefer the simple life these days, and have become quite the home body, being happiest in my studio or out in my garden. I love working the days away in my home studio with my husband by my side and feel so blessed to be able to live my dream of making a living with my artistic creations. My family is everything to me and I love that I can run my business from home to be with them as much as possible. I have a soft spot for animals and share my home with a dog, a little tribe of Hermit crabs and a Holland Lop bunny. I have also had the awesome opportunity to raise two orphan baby Mallard ducks, an orphan Mourning Dove and a few Pekin ducklings. With age, I've learned not to take myself so seriously, and I try to find the silver lining in everything. I believe everything is a lesson God is teaching me, bringing me closer to Him; and I love much, because He first loved me.---
