Jaime Byrd is a painter, jewelry designer, filmmaker, bread maker, tequila expert, and international traveler. She has been creating art her entire life all while honing her skills specifically in the visual arts since 1980.
Influenced by nature, travel, other artists, culinary arts, and the colors of Mexico, Jaime’s paintings are sometimes explosive with color and texture and at other times filled with moody muted tones. Her creative process is mostly intuitive and she loves the playfulness of both acrylic and oil paints in fun and vibrant ways. Building up multiple thick layers of paint on wood panels, canvas, and paper, she creates fields of texture and depth by then working back into the layers revealing different color combinations that are beneath the top surfaces.
Jaime lives with her husband in both Asheville, NC and Mexico while they also travel to other international destinations annually.
