Lady J Arts

Several months ago artist Jessica Hope Prince Kroll met with a client at the Downtowne Coffee House. When leaving she noticed the “For Rent” sign on the building next door. In mid December she opened the doors of her very own working artists studio, Lady J Arts, at 202 Talent Avenue.

Raised in Ashland, and after living in several towns here in the Rogue Valley, Jessica found herself happily living in Talent for handful of years. “When I got married several years ago, I moved to Medford with my husband. It didn’t take long before I was homesick for the little town I had grown to love.”
