Artist CVphipps_artistportraitMy work focuses on the Midwest landscape. Having lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin, I have always taken photos of our big beautiful skies to take back home to my studio, but lately, I have been relying on memory and emotion as inspiration for my paintings. I am currently exploring weather, landscape and natural environments and how they relate to or affect our mood.

I play with my technique and process by applying and removing thin veils of color. Working and reworking until I get depth and a certain ambiance that rides the line between realistic, abstract and expressionist.

Jamie is a contemporary landscape painter living in Western Wisconsin.
