Artist in Residence Program

At Hedy & Hopp, we’re all about connection. And artists make connections in ways other people don’t, forcing us to see the world differently. To react emotionally. To think about life more expansively.

About the Program

Each year, we’ll select an artist and showcase their work on all of our platforms. Selected artists will have their artwork featured on a variety of Hedy & Hopp brand assets, platforms and marketing channels, and will receive a stipend for the year. We champion creativity and relish this opportunity to give these artists additional exposure and recognition. It’s just one way we inspire joy and build connections among communities.


Jessica Hitchcock

Jessica is a St. Louis-based artist known for creating vibrant, colorful paintings that capture the joy in life. (She was even dubbed “St. Louis’ Queen of Color” by Ladue News.) Jessica’s work graces the walls of corporate offices and healthcare facilities across the St. Louis region and boasts a place in private collections throughout Europe, Australia and the U.S.

She finds joy in combining her background in business and art to help other artists build a solid foundation for their art careers — as well as in spreading cheer where it’s needed most.

“I’ve had the honor to create colorful and joy-filled paintings for cancer facilities and hospitals throughout my career,” Jessica says. “The idea that my artwork can bring comfort and joy to someone that’s going through an emotionally overwhelming moment is truly fulfilling.”
