Yessica, AKA, Xeroine

Hello! My name is Yessica Jimenez, also known as Xeroine Illustration and I’m a Xicana illustrator and visual artist based out of Milwaukee Wisconsin.

I was born and raised in Milwaukee and I’ve been drawing since I can remember. I have a BFA in Fine art From MIAD with a focus in illustration. The work that I make is focused on different aspects of my identity. Some of them include my culture, being a Woman of Color, being the daughter of Mexican Immigrants, being Bi/Pan, some personal trauma and what spirituality means to me. While the illustrations and paintings that I make are reflections of myself, I look to create images with the hope that others in my communities can also relate to.  

When I’m not creating personal pieces, I often work with local musicians and writers to create album art, merch designs and book covers. I’m also part of the local art collective named LUNA – Latinas Unidas eN Las Artes. A collective with over 30 local Latinx artists who identify as women or non-binary.
