My Bio
Jaymee Laws doesn't remember when she started painting, but according to her family, it all started when she was three years old.

Born and raised in Lewiston, Idaho, Jaymee had many encouraging and inspiring art teachers. She studied informally throughout high school and into college at LCSC, mostly doing independent study.

Her work has hung locally and in gallery shows in Chicago and Minneapolis, and one of her paintings was chosen as a media piece for Altered Asthetics annual DIA DE LOS MUERTOS show. She was featured in the New York based magazine Literary Fever in 2006 for her effort to paint 100 women in a year. She has donated several pieces to worthy fundraising projects and her paintings have been sold to private collectors across the country.

Jaymee's art focuses on women, form and color. She tries to create every day, and works mostly in acrylic on canvas, and in mosaic. Her inspiration comes largely from her life as a woman raising four daughters and one son, two of whom have autism. She holds true to the belief that we all see things differently, and that women are strong and full of dynamic emotions.

Jaymee continues to live and work in Lewiston, Idaho, where she resides in a 110 year old house full of energy and magic. She relies heavily on the devotion and support of her parents and her husband Jim, a working musician who plays drums for a local band, the 7devils.
Jaymee hopes to continue painting and creating for the rest of her life.

im back. finally.

so my life fell apart a little bit... i ended my marriage and moved out with my four daughters. as a result, i was so preoccupied with everything that was going on, and i stopped painting. for over a year. everything i had done at the end of my last productive period seemed stale and i was afraid to try again. im happy to say that i started painting again this month. things are going well. im hoping my style will continue to develop and i will improve. thank you everyone who has been supportive of my work. it means the world to me. xo jaymee
