About the Artist – Jamie Wilke
Artist Statement – “My goal as an artist is to capture nature’s inspiring moments and share it with others. The moment could be the intricate shawl of frost on a crispy autumn leaf or the backlit tuft of fur on a black bear’s arm. I hope when you hang my art in your home it will remind you of your own time spent outdoors when you look at it.”
Artist Biography – Jamie Wilke resides in Palmer Lake, Colorado, a small mountain town on the Front Range – in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains south of Denver. She is an outdoor enthusiast and enjoys the varied natural beauty where she lives – from rolling prairie fields and cattle ranches to the climbing Rocky Mountains. Jamie was a self-taught artist growing up, and she has been drawing and painting animals, plants and landscapes as long as she can remember. She works in charcoal, oil and watercolor and is thrilled to be creating art on a regular basis again as an adult and learning new techniques from other artists to grow her fine art skills.
Jamie is a member of the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Palmer Lake – where her work has been accepted into art shows. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Scientific & Technical Communications at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, MI. Growing up in the countryside in northeastern Wisconsin, she created art – including animal rock paintings – for county fair competitions through 4-H, but she never took art class in high school. When she isn’t working on her latest art piece, Jamie can be seen trail running, hiking with her family and coaching youth sports. She has two children and also enjoys skiing, gardening and fixing up her 1970s home with her husband Jeff.
