To quote the one and only Van Gogh
"The things which fill my head and my heart must be expressed in drawings or pictures"
I am Kristy Jamieson, an intuitive artist and designer.
Let's start with a vivid memory of falling in love with Vincent Van Gogh in art class, it was 2002 and my obession with impressionism was ignited, an artistic style that seeks to capture a feeling or experience rather than to achieve accurate depiction.
With me to this day is the way Vincent didn't seem to fit into this world and his absolute need to paint, to express himself.
I could resonate, having deep desires to draw and later paint from a young age. All I could see for myself was to become an artist. And liken to Vincent I didn't feel I fit this world, feeling like an alien would be a way of describing how it felt to be here. (Finding A Course in Miracles has helped with this tremendously - ACIM ;)
It WAS NOT love at first sight......
My creative ways lead me reluctantly to graphic design (a real job...). In my heart all I wanted to do was paint, to be an artist. To express what rumbled around inside my mind.
But silver-linings, graphic design inevitably opened a world of creation I didn't see coming and lead me to digital art.
In a more linear sequence my journey has gone something like this: small business designer; corporate freelance designer; ACIM student and lover; intuitive designer and artist; co-creation of Sacred 13 with Ricci-Jane Adams. And that brings us to now, I am now holding a vision my much younger self of 17 could only see, and that is to create, to bring to life all that fills my being. I am filled with joy to see all that is to come.
Every step of the road has lead me back to the beginning.
