Jessilyn Park, being dubbed the "Painter of Positivity" creates art that uses bright, feel-good colors that evoke a sense of happiness to those that look at her art.

Color therapy has been used in traditional healing for many years. Recently though, marketers and businesses have also used color to shift human moods.
Research has recently shown that when our eyes connect with color, our brain releases varying chemicals that affect us both physically and emotionally.
For example, red rooms will increase our heart rate and stimulate chemicals commonly associated with high energy and aggression. However, the color yellow stimulates the production of serotonin (the feel-good chemical) by our brains.
Fast food restaurants have tuned in on this research and it is no coincidence that they use red liberally. Volkswagen uses yellow to evoke a happy-go-lucky feeling. Greens and blues have a calming effect and are used in yoga studios and doctor’s offices. Prisons, on the other hand use pink to house aggressive inmates for its calming and energy draining effects.
Jessilyn Park, being dubbed the "Painter of Positivity" creates art that uses bright, feel-good colors that evoke a sense of happiness to those that look at her art. Recently, an international art collector in Germany sought her out specifically for her painting Reflection of the Soul because he said it felt “powerful and positive”.
This Sunday, September 23rd, 2012, Park returns to her hometown of Palm Bay, Florida for the opening reception of “Elevations – An exhibition of eclectic landscapes” being held at Pizza Gallery and Grill located at 2250 Town Center Ave. Viera, Florida 32940 from 8:00pm-10:00pm.
