Jaimie is a lens based interdisciplinary artist. Her work is rooted in place in a spiritual way within the natural world. Currently exploring digital with edited and some composited images, she prints the images on special archival papers, then further manipulates with hand-coloring, painting, and sometimes encaustics. The results are often described as ethereal. Whether representational or abstract, she seeks the little mysteries found when light models on forms and color.
Jaimie has a long use photography of traditional film and silver gelatin, Cyanotype, Van Dyke, Photograms, photo manipulations, infrared, and other alternative processes. As a fine art major, she began exploring hand tinting, coloring, and painting of photographs with oils, pencils, and water based media while at the university. She used 35 mm, 2 1/4 x 21/4, and toy cameras.
Her work is archival; made with materials for longevity. She has been in many galleries, press, and venues. Pieces are in private, public, and corporate collections. All pieces are in limited editions of 10 or 15 in one or more sizes.
Jaimie was born in Ohio, and has lived in a variety of places in many states and countries. She earned a BFA from University of Montana with a certificate to teach. She has been an art educator in Houston for 30 years.
