Jaime's Profile

About

Hello,
Thanks for stopping in and reading about me!
I am a stay-at-home mom with 2 sweet boys (5 and less than 1).
In between running to story time, swim class, and folding laundry, I try to evoke my creative energies!
I am (was/have been/wished I could be) a potter, painter, photographer, floral designer, illustrator, street performer, chicken farmer, and polymer sculptor. Jewelry is my current creative outlet - I can string pearls in between loads of laundry!
Please know, any money that you spend in my shop helps me pay for kids activities, school/art supplies, and buying healthy food for the kiddos.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Seek Peace and Fly High,
Jaime

Born and raised in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Jaime grew up in the small town of Brevort. Her interest in art started very young. She began making jewelry in grade school to sell at bluegrass shows.
Passionate about the outdoors, she and her husband Brent moved to Crested Butte in 2003. Jaime enjoys rafting and cross-country skiing. She has recently found an outlet for her stilt-walking and has unofficially joined the Circus.
Almost everything has been placed on-hold since fall of 2012. Brent and Jaime welcomed the newest addition to their family mid-September. With two boys and a dog ( who thinks she's a kid too), life can get a little hectic. . . but there's ALWAYS time to be creative.
Jaime attended Finlandia University where she studied Fine Art with and intensive on ceramics. Since moving to the Gunnison Valley, Jaime has worked as a Floral Designer for more than five years and teaches adult pottery classes at the Gunnison Arts Center. She also received her Master Gardener's Certificate from the CSU Extension.
Jaime enjoys photography and costume making, but her specialties include: Custom tile, gauged earrings, one of a kind stone and ceramic jewelry, and floral design.
