Statement
Jamie is an Oakland, California-based visual artist and teacher. He was born in 1980 in Topeka, Kansas and was raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Art was an integral part of his childhood, and the family home was always equipped with space for messy art projects. In the eleventh grade, Jamie made the life-long commitment to the arts.
 
In 2002 he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and printmaking from the University of Michigan School of Art and Design. One of the highlights of his undergraduate study was an exchange program with Kyoto Seika University in Kyoto, Japan where he studied traditional Japanese painting. After receiving his BFA, Jamie moved to Detroit where he opened his first studio as a professional artist, Nitty Gritty Studios.

In the following years, Jamie divided his time between baking artisan breads, painting, printmaking, teaching and exhibiting throughout the Detroit area. In 2004, he moved to California to pursue a Master’s Degree. In 2006 he received his MFA in Painting and Drawing from the California College of Arts in San Francisco. Also in 2006, Jamie received a grant from the Center for Art and Public Life at CCA to realize his project “Young Artist Explorers” with a group of young artists in the town of Tlacolula, Oaxaca, Mexico.

During his four-month residency in Oaxaca, he taught at the Casa de la Cultura in Tlacolula, and created a series of watercolors for his “Recently Ancient Project.” Jamie currently teaches art at Oakland Unity High School. He is the cofounder of a Bay Area critique group, “Artists Engaged.” Jamie maintains a rigorous painting, drawing and collage practice in his Oakland studio and he frequently exhibits his work in the San Francisco and Oakland area. Jamie’s work has also been exhibited internationally in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Japan.
