Jesse England earned his BFA from Emporia State University and his MFA from the University of Texas at Arlington. He says of his work: “I try to create things I’ve never seen before. I want to share the things I consider unique and beautiful with others.  These are the simplest, most important reasons I make art. I hold processes that require a significant amount of skill and physical effort in high regard. This is due to my upbringing. I was raised in a small town amongst people who valued hard work. My closest childhood friends became welders, machinists, construction workers, linemen, electricians, and farmers.”
