ABOUT

After studying fine arts in Los Angeles, Jaime focused on design and filmmaker before moving into painting full time. In 1999, she relocated to the Appalachian mountains outside of Asheville, North Carolina where her art studio is still today.  Deciding to immerse herself in travel and filmmaking, Jaime took 5 years off to travel the globe and live in places like Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, and Mexico. When she returned she brought back with her a new view on her idea of art and how she creates.

It wasn’t long after that Jaime began merging her love of painting with filmmaking along with her deep interests in technology by creating Augmented Reality (AR) artwork that is part of many her paintings. She also offers NFT (non fungible tokens) of her work as well.

“My work is often about our connectivity to not only nature, but with one another, and with the AR I create I’m hoping to take viewers even deeper into that journey.”

Jaime has had gallery exhibitions in both Mexico and the US including 2 solo shows in Asheville, NC.  Her paintings have been featured on the cover of Rapid River and Carolina Arts magazines and her artwork is in permanent art collections in the US, Canada, England, Serbia, Indonesia, South Africa, and Mexico.
