Artist Biography

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.

Artist Statement

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.

The gallery’s competition for July 2022 was the 12th Annual “Seascapes” Online Art Competition. 2D and 3D artists, (including photography & digital art) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s August 2022 online group art exhibition.

Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “Seascapes” theme by submitting their best abstract or representational art. The submission process and competition for the artists began in June 2022 and concluded on July 27, 2022.

The gallery received 556 entries from 20 different countries from around the world, as well as from 28 different states and the District of Columbia.   

The exhibition has been divided into two media categories.  Painting & Other Media and Photography & Digital categories.  Due to a limited number of 3 Dimensional entries, these artworks have been included in the Painting & Other Media category. In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the twelve (12) best entries comprised from all the media categories.

The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.

All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of August 2022. Thereafter, the artworks and links to the artist’s websites will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives.

Congratulations to our artists who made our 12th Annual “Seascapes” Art Exhibition so successful this month. At any time, we invite our winning artists and other interested visitors to link their websites to the Gallery’s archive page for further ongoing promotion.
