Artist
Jaime Ellsworth Friday Harbor, Washington

Jaime Ellsworth paints animals. Her career as a cowhand never got off the ground, so she stumbled into art never knowing it would complement her passion for animals so completely. Most subjects are her own, but lately she has expanded out of her corral to include bears and beasts not commonly seen on San Juan Island, in the Pacific Northwest, where she's lived for the last 30 years. She suspects it will be years before she runs out of inspiration or has jeans that aren’t covered with paw prints or paint.

    Artist Statement

    Jaime Ellsworth paints animals. Most subjects are her own, but lately she has expanded out of her own corral to include bears and beasts not commonly seen on San Juan Island where she's lived for the last 33 years.
    Her paintings are created of many layers of oil or acrylic paint beginning with a limited palette of bold colors. Subsequent layers allow the under-paint to peek through and transparent glazes give the final surface a subtle tint.

    With each work, she invites the viewer to look at the simplicity of the image, then beyond, opening a door to the imagination.

    Jaime has exceeded all of my expectations again. I love the 5 Bowls painting I acquired last month from Jaime, and Biker is a great addition to my new Ellsworth collection. What an incredible talent! Thank you Jaime.

    Jaime - thank you for this wonderful piece and also the card you enclosed with it. It's a marvellous, whimsical piece and, of course, looks even more so in person. It's now safely tucked away as it's a gift for my better-half this coming Xmas. I know it will be cherished once it's adorning our walls. Thanks again for your talent and expertise and the added personal touch!
