About jamie

Jamie Peterson has been painting professionally for fifteen years, at first concentrating on portrait work and now expanding those portraits into live event painting and seascapes. 

Her work investigates the nature of personal narratives and how capturing a fleeting moment can tell an entire story.  She weaves courage, wit, and innocence into her paintings, to remind the viewer of the joy and uniqueness that is present in those around them.  While her work is representational, each piece incorporates abstraction in the brushwork and playful tension on the surface. 

Jamie graduated from the US Air Force Academy and studied Studio Art at the University of West Florida. She has been represented by Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ, Matt Jones Gallery in Birmingham, AL and Atelier Gallery in Charleston, SC and has shown her work in various group and solo shows. Her paintings belong to hundreds of private collectors and publicly at Children's of Alabama and Children's National Medical Center.

Her approach to live event painting is a natural extension of her training as a figurative artist. Her inherent ability to portray perfectly the characteristics and personality of her subjects bring a fresh and exciting edge to the live event painting industry. She is truly unique in her field. Her flawless brushstrokes, original abstractions, luxurious oil medium and pure colors combine to capture fleeting moments in time that will leave lasting memories. 

Jamie is currently located out of both South Carolina and Washington, D.C. and is available for events worldwide.
