Jamie studied art at Southern Utah University and Eastern Illinois University where she received her Bachelor of Art degree in Studio Art. Later, she obtained her Master of Fine Arts degree at the New York Academy of Figurative Art. Since graduating she has taught art to students of all ages and is currently teaching Drawing and Composition as well as Design at Dixie State University. Jamie’s art focuses on foundation studies. These studies have given her a structured way to see
nature and teach others to draw from life. This ability to communicate the visual language in their drawing studies and to seek to fill their art with emotion and power has led many of Jamie’s students to produce work of extraordinary quality.
