Jessica Sternbach began studying Art History at Willamette University and was instantly drawn to the vivid colors and impeccable detail of Northern Renaissance artworks. She continued this passion for the Northern painters throughout her education at the Institute of Fine Arts (MA) and Temple University where she is currently working on her Ph.D. Travel has always been a passion for Jessica who studied abroad in Rome during her junior year at Willamette and returned to the Eternal City for a summer to work at Context Travel’s Rome office. Since that time, she has visited several countries checking off her art “bucket list.” During her time in Los Angeles, she worked at the Getty Center and the Getty Villa.
