Jessie sends her artwork to her mother on the backs of forms she’s given, because she is not given blank pieces of paper, or pencils.

Jessie is occasionally allowed crayons in her cell, but has received infractions for drawing or writing on the backs of informational forms she has been given. Each infraction carries further restrictions on her access to the phone, video visitation.



Jessie also loves photography.

Her mother says that she has carried a camera around with her for as long as she can remember and takes beautiful pictures.
