My work is characterised by texture and bold colours


Hi I’m Jaimie, a contemporary self-taught abstract artist. My paintings are characterised by texture, with bold and vibrant colours.


A brief history – After leaving school I undertook a bachelors degree in a non art subject and pursued a professional corporate career for 20+ years. It wasn’t until I decided to leave work to be at home full time for my growing children that I rediscovered art and painting. I enrolled in a local art class and that was it I was hooked and I’ve not stopped since.


My art clearly shows my love of working with colour and thick texture and my process is often intuitive once I get started, I start with a feeling I want to invoke combined with some chosen colours and let the painting guide me as it progresses. I take inspiration for my art from observations of colour, nature, and music. I have sold art to local, national and international collectors including commissions for both private and corporate clients.
All of my work is signed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
