Jamie Downs, Mixed Media Artist
Jamie Downs received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting degree from Kutztown University in Pennsylvania with further study at La Salle College in Philadelphia and University of Massachusetts, Amherst and has taught at Prince Georges Community College, Drexel University and currently at Montgomery College, Germantown.
Jamie has worked in mixed media painting for over 45 years exploring themes of oneness and transcendence, searching for her own personal archetypes. This often makes it possible to place work done in different media and sometimes even scale, years apart, together to form a seamless diptych or triptych. Her largest series of work is the Oneness series which is non-objective; but her most recent series are floral architypes, birds and animals.
She has had numerous one person and group shows and is in many collections. Her studio is in North Kensington, Maryland and open by appointment. Her work can be seen at
