Jessica Haas is the first female speed painter in America. Since discovering speed art at the age of 15 through her determination to be authentic to her true artistic talent in a talent competition, Jessica has been a speed artist over half her life. In 2013, Jessica’s performance painter career took off when she became the first speed painter in the history of Miss Tennessee to ever win talent by painting the face of Jesus Christ in only 90 seconds upside down. Right now, Jessica is the first and only award-winning speed painter in the history of the Miss America Organization. Jessica’s talent caught the attention of an A&E reality television show and she was invited to speed paint on the show. Today she shares her talents nationwide. She also owns and is the lead designer at The Birds Nest Co. She is the founder of Unbound Ministries, an empowerment ministry that seeks to free at-risk girls from poverty. Her greatest passion is to leave a legacy of authenticity that encourages young women to be bold about who God created them to be, even if it means being different.
