Although a Washington State native, Jessica Champeau spent most of her life in Colorado. She received her B.A. Degree in Psychology with a minor in Fine Art from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. Jessica has spent the last 6 years working in the field of Applied Behavioral Analysis with children and young adults along the Autism Spectrum. In this field, she has worked as a job coach, as a community-based therapist, clinically, and later as a Program Coordinator for an after school program.
Jessica loves working with diverse populations and has been blessed to be able to volunteer in East Africa, Kashmir, India, and Kurdistan, Iraq. On her most recent trip teaching ESL and art with refugees in Iraq, Jessica decided that she wanted to do the same in the US. Upon returning home to Colorado, she moved to Clarkston, Georgia, and has enjoyed teaching ESL within that community for two years.
Art has been with Jessica since she was very young. She has been in various art shows throughout her career and has worked heavily with charcoal, acrylic paint, airbrush, ink, henna, fabric/sewing, jewelry, sculpture, woodworking, bookbinding, and other mixed media approaches. Jessica loves to teach and empower students to express themselves creatively in ways that are unique to them. She is very excited to be able to use each part of her background as an art teacher at Tapestry!
