Jaime Byrd is a painter and Emmy nominated film editor beginning her study in the arts as a young child. She spent her childhood in Los Angeles, California where she attended art school and eventually migrated to the mountains of North Carolina.
Most of Jaime’s works are a mix of contemporary and post-impressionism and are inspired by artists like Van Gogh, Monet, and Gauguin. Her pieces are vivid, magical depictions of a dreamlike natural world, of houses and places both nostalgic and real, somehow on a time arc of past, present, and future, simultaneously.
Jaime has won numerous awards for her art and film work and has been featured in private and public collections around the globe.
With a strong connection with nature that plays an important part of her work, Jaime’s paintings often reflect and question the consciousness and unconsciousness of what lays below us and what we allow to show on the surface, yet also providing a sense of calm and tranquility. She does not produce a landscape, but rather convey the sensation produced by the landscape.
Her use of oil paint and mixed media brings texture and contrast while lighting up the scene and the emotions of the viewer with the most vibrant colors. Each image is expansive in perspective, dramatic in color, and yet intimate in the details of place. The compositions offer a kind of drone-eyed view across an open landscape that takes your eye upward to the sky and downward into the layers below.
Jaime Byrd artwork has been represented in dozens of solo and group exhibitions and with hundreds of collectors eagerly anticipating her work, and with close to 100,000 followers across social media, Jaime Byrd is considered a truly cutting-edge modern multi-media artist.
She is a member of the River Arts District Association in Asheville, NC.
Besides painting, she loves cooking, good tequila and mezcal, long distance walking (Camino de Santiago), animals, and international travel.
