Jamie started painting a couple years ago when he was living in Santa Cruz ,California.  He’s interested in hard edge abstract paintings and plans on completing two painting series. The first will be called “Neon on the wall” and the other will be called “Ice on the dune”. Jamie’s artistic inspirations are William Blake, Alex Grey, Charles Bukowski, Death grips, his mother, and nature.
In addition to Jamie Wynter we have 3 other artists opening their studios tomorrow from noon-5pm. Dee Alexandria, Cynthia Zeedyk and Paula Manning-Lewis.

Artist of the Week: Justin Thor Simenson

JUSTIN’S BIO:

I have always been drawn to photos. The idea that you an capture a moment in time that will never happen again has inspired me to become a photographer.

I used a Nikon Coolpix 4300 for two and a half years. I was pretty happy with it for its convenience, but wanted more. I currently use a Canon Digital Rebel XT. I am really happy with this camera. I have 4 lenses a Canon 15-55mm, Canon 75-300mm, Cannon 50mm 1.8, and a Lensbaby 2.0. I also have a Canon AE-1 film camera with several lenses included a 50mm and 75-200mm.

My goal as a photographer is to share the beauty of the places I have been with others. I print my photography on a customer by customer basis. This is to insure that each customer receives exactly what fits their own personality and budget. I also like to get to know each person that has one of my photographs.
