Artist Statement / My work is an exploration of shape and color, using layering as a guide. Everything is unplanned and completely intuitive—each mark is a response to its predecessor. The repetition of shapes and lines is an exercise used to escape from everything else around me. I'm a believer in embracing happy accidents and approaching each piece as an experiment. I am inspired by Japanese calligraphy (Shodo), graphics and style from the 80s and 90s, electronic music, celebrations/parties, fireworks, space exploration and sci-fi, undersea creatures, topography, cartography, plated food, and architecture.
Jaime's work has appeared in blogs/magazines, TV shows, films, and her work is collected by celebrities.

There was a sturdy vessel
Called the Yucatan.
A merchant ship she was,
Owned by Japan.
Manned by fifty men, strong and bold,
She carried a cargo of millions in gold.
At dawn there came a roar,
The mast fell, killing four.
“No quarter; no quarter!” was the Captain’s call,
As the enemy poured in,
Ball after ball.
Suddenly, she sank, under a great wave.
Then, a clank,
She had reached her grave.
Fifty men, strong and bold,
had gone down with the Yucatan,
And her cargo of gold.
/ Nathan Ellis, age 12
