An artist in Oakdale went to court last week, in the best way.

Jessica Williams is an artist working with Midwest Special Services, an organization that provides programming and services to adults with disabilities.

Opportunities vary from employment, community engagement, or the creative arts.

Last week, in a partnership with ‘We Are Lions’ Jessica designed a pair of basketball shoes for the WNBA’s Seattle Storm player, Jewell Lloyd.

Lloyd wore the shoes in the game against the Lynx and (bummer alert for the Lynx fans) was her team’s high scorer in the win.

Jessica was proud of the shoes she made, and she sat down with Jana Shortal to talk about that, and, what inspires her to create art.
