Below are Jaimie’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.
Jaimie is a lens based interdisciplinary artist. Her work is rooted in place in a spiritual way within the natural world. She also studies nature through still life botanicals. Currently exploring digital with edited and some composited images, she prints the images on special 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. 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, The Netherlands, and Gabon in Africa. She earned a BFA from University of Montana with a certificate to teach. She has been an art educator in Houston for 30 years.
Where Land Meets Sea
Rushing onto the land, then retreating back into the sea, tides are at once both constant and ever-changing. The water shapes the shorelines into a surprising and beautiful place of discovery. As a Thalassophile, a lover of the sea: I long for the eternally rhythmic and mesmerizing sounds at the water’s edge and draw healing strength from their energy.
Wandering the beaches, berms, and beyond, I search for revelations in the natural shorelines. I find relationships between the depth of the sea and our deep inner beliefs. Focusing on natural environments, looking for mystery, I am creating the visualization of my dreams.
In order to better convey the mystical, I print my images on archival hot press natural and Japanese papers. I embellish with hand-colored oil pencils, pan and stick dry pastels, and other media. In building layers of color, I try to reflect the deep and ageless stirrings of the sea.
