Jess Cuffe is an artist and always has been. Since the tender age of 6, she's loved to convey expression and movement through any medium she could find and on any surface she could use. Though lately she has been married to more of a digital setup with a bit of time for pencil to paper on the side. But again whatever the medium, she is always creating new characters and using story to build worlds and experiences for games, comics, television, and film.
Graduated from the Academy of Art University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Animation and VFX with a focus in Character Design and 2D Animation, Jess has been given opportunities to work on a multitude of projects. From short films and comic books to web shorts and television shows Jess has thrived in every environment she's been a part of. She even garnered an NAACP Image Awards nomination for her work on Marvel's Avengers: Black Panther's Quest. In fact, she was even interviewed by MARVEL about the show and the nomination, a link to the interview can be found here. She was also invited to speak at Kidsscreen Summit 2020 in Miami, a link to an additional interview from the conference can be found here.
