The Artist: Haley Hess

When the world suddenly stopped during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, my passion was ignited.  During the stay-at-home order, I decided to try creating art with epoxy resin and quickly fell in love with it. I love pushing my boundaries and trying new things with epoxy.    

What started as a hobby to stay busy, has now become a full-blown art business.  I never imagined that I would be a full-time artist, but now I realize that it's a real possibility and a new goal of mine.  

At the beginning of 2022, I started experimenting with watercolor.  My art passion has shifted to this medium.  I think it was a great segue, as epoxy and watercolor are actually very similar in how they are unpredictable yet beautiful.
