ABOUT

Jaime Byrd is a life-long artist and painter, beginning her study in the arts as a young child.  As a constant traveler who has filmed, photographed, and edited projects for many years, Jaime’s passion for the landscape, her instinct for the narrative, and her emotional response to color are foundational aspect of her unique paintings. She uses cold wax and oil paint to bring 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 is greatly inspired by impressionist masters like Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, and Paul Gauguin as well as expressionist artists like Vincent van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky, and many others. She worked as a jeweler for more than 20 years, and then moved into filmmaking which took her into editing and working on movie sets. She spent 15 years traveling around the globe, spending a good deal of time in Mexico and Southeast Asia, filming and editing projects for a number of clients.

After all those years in the film world, Jaime is now merging her love of both painting and filmmaking by creating AR (Augmented Reality) components to her physical oil and cold wax paintings. The AR creations she creates are also available as NFTs (non fungible tokens). Jaime Byrd artwork can be found in collections around the world including permanent collections in the US, Canada, England, Serbia, Austria, Ireland, Scotland, Indonesia, South Africa, New Zealand, and Mexico.

With hundreds of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and thousands of followers online, Jaime Byrd is considered a truly cutting-edge modern multi-media artist with her technical and artistic skills. 

She is represented in four galleries in the United States and is a member of the River Arts District Association in Asheville, NC.

 

Besides painting, she loves cooking, good tequila, walking the Camino de Santiago, animals, and international travel.
