Jess Rocha, hailing from Bartlett, Illinois, graduated from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2018, where she majored in New Studio Practice. She also graduated with an Associate Degree in Science, and an Associate Degree in Fine Art from the local Elgin Community College in 2015.
