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.
