About the Artist
I’m Jamie, a Connecticut native who has had a crayon, pencil or paintbrush in my hand since I was able to hold them. For as long back as my grandmother could remember, and as deep as her hope chest filled with old oil paintings by distant relatives, art seems to be natural gift in my family … and a joy. As a child, most of my Saturdays were filled sitting at her dining room table with a big canvas, brushes and paints in more colors than I could imagine.
Since 1999, I have studied and worked in the graphic design field. I enjoy working independently as a freelancer in my studio, and equally, as a team player with clientele and colleagues. My years of professional experience can handle any project, whether you are working under extremely tight deadlines, require complex components, or are in need of sophisticated art. I love to sketch and paint and bring my lifelong talents to the production, layout and illustration table.
