Jessie Fox is the artist and creator of Whatif Creations. Born in San Francisco, she had a deep fondness for nature, animals, and drawing from a very young age. In 2005 she moved to Portland, Oregon to pursue undergraduate studies after falling in love with the Pacific Northwest. Her hybrid animal drawings came about during her first career in counseling while working troubled teens at a treatment facility. She enjoyed drawing hybrid animals for her caseload in order to break the ice and engage them creatively.
Jessie started Whatif Creations in 2013, bringing to life the illustration series inspired by her counseling work. She became a member of Portland Saturday Market in 2014 which has been her home base ever since. Jessie hopes to keep improving as an artist while expanding her business to reach wider audiences
