Jamie was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and has lived throughout the east coast and in Europe. She has been painting since childhood. It has not only been a profession but a way to experience the beauty of the world. Her work has been exhibited in many galleries here in the U.S. and in Europe. She has specialized in portraiture, live events, and most recently, seascapes. Jamie currently lives in Columbia, SC, with her two children and two cats, Finn and Orion.
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.
