about the presenter
Jessica Ry'cheal is an interdiscplinary storyteller and Art Director from Macon, Georgia. Ry'cheal received a BFA from Georgia Southern University. After spending a few years cultivating her talents in the southeast, Ry'cheal relocated to Seattle. She's carved space for herself in the Pacific Northwest with a career in commercial design strategy, and her debut photography exhibition Everyday Black at the Northwest African-American Museum. However, her healing journey and a few intuitive guides led Rycheal back to her first love, writing. In this medium, Ry'cheal explores themes of self-healing, generational trauma, and self-love.
Though the disciplines in which Jessica Ry'cheal works vary, the common thread unifying her diverse mediums of expression is storytelling. Her passion for storytelling is rooted in a love for people and advocacy for holistic black liberation. It is this love and passion that yield the emotive, impactful, and relatable body of work for which Ry'cheal is known.
Free and open to the public.
