Mixed media artist Jamie Zimchek is best known for the way she uses bold colors and mark-making to explore alternate realities, remembered or reimagined. Though California born, Zimchek spent formative years world wandering, which shapes in part her multifaceted approach. An oil painter first, her oeuvre now incorporates pencil, gouache, ink, and even thread on substrates that swing from canvas to printed photographs and textiles. Zimchek’s work is infused with an energy that pulls from both the everyday and the exceptional.
More of Jamie's work can be found at the Newbill Collection in Seaside, and her sleek contemporary jewelry line is available at Nicole Paloma in Grayton Beach.
