Jamie has been formally taught and can create a painting of a person, place, idea, or concept, however she loves to stand in front of her bare canvas with all her paints and mediums, palette knives and brushes and allow the present moment to come through her painting in silence or music, not thinking or trying to manipulate or plan the creation of art. She feels very fulfilled by letting go to see what beautiful art presents itself.
