The Story of the Art

The Fabulous Four Seasons

The Fabulous Four Seasons depicts the beloved birch, in abstract technicolor.

They are such an intelligent and symbolic tree - I can't help but compare them to 'The Giving Tree' by Shel Silverstein.

Because they've given us so much, both physically and spiritually, I wanted to honor them in grand fashion. It just so happens they're so fun to paint!

About the Artist

Jessica Dretsch

Only through adversity did Jessica find way back to her love of art. Her untapped creativity bursted out of the bottle and is brimming with excitement – just like her!

Her interdisciplinary work is rooted in great love for our lakes and trees. A 1st generation Ojibway descendant, her not-so-traditional beadwork and jewelry tells a story, often in bright, bold fashion. Her work has been featured on Anji’bide video and virtual art show. Her jewelry can be found online and in person at DL’s Vintage and Vogue.

Ever expanding, Ms. Dretsch dove into acrylics. In 2020 her painted sailboat, The Lady and the Loon was selected to be part of DL’s sesquicentennial extravaganza. In 2022 she was awarded the Anishinaabe Arts initiative grant to further her development.

Jessica’s art serves as a glorious reminder that anything is possible and the beauty in that doesn’t escape her. It’s her hope for others struggling with addiction to know there’s a beautiful life waiting for them, too.
