Making Her Presence Felt – Shaftesbury Artist Jess Simms

There are just two more days to visit a unique exhibition of local landscapes and wildlife at Shaftesbury Arts Centre Gallery.

One of Jess Simms creations in felt.

Shaftesbury artist Jess Simms’ gorgeous pictures of North Dorset nature and scenery are even more remarkable, because Jess has been recovering from a stroke. For a while, Jess lost movement in one of her hands.

Alfred’s Dee Abbott went to meet Jess and learn more about her art.
