    ------------------------------------- CUSTOMER REVIEWS

    "Jamie, your painting arrived in perfect condition! And, as I expected, it looks even better ‘in person’ than on the computer screen. Thank you so much for your careful packing and wonderful painting."

    "...Today I finally surprised [my wife] with the actual painting! It is her birthday! And I just wanted to let you know the we both absolutely love it!! She was so so surprised, and just speechless.... Thank you again for being so flexible and good to work with! It was such a joy preparing for today and I appreciated your professionalism throughout the process!"

    "I love the new painting! It's actually a little more golden and fluid than it looks in the pic and I love the movement; everything in my house is a little on the warm and yellow and gold side so it could hang pretty much anywhere. It's going to the framer shortly and I look forward to having it up :-)"

    "Jamie, it's lovely!!! Thank you so much for all the time and love you've put into it! You have no idea how much joy your work is bringing to me. I'm very grateful!"

    "I just wanted to share that my father-in-law absolutely LOVES your painting. He loves the frame and said that he's never owned a real oil painting. 😊 But most importantly, he loves the subject matter and he and my husband spent a lot of time reminiscing this morning about hikes they took there years ago. This part of the Hudson is, by far, their favorite! Thank you SO much for making this Christmas gift PERFECT."

    ------------------------------------------ If you haven't seen the two-DVD set, "The Impressionists", you don't know what you're missing!

    I rented it from Netflix and absolutely loved it. It is an enactment of the lives of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, and other Impressionist painters living at that time around Paris. Fascinating and eye-opening!





Jamie Williams Grossman is a Signature Member and former Chairman of New York Plein Air Painters (NYPAP), and current Leader of their Lower Hudson Valley Chapter of over 350 artists. She won the Second Place award at the Olana Plein Air event in October, 2013. She also belongs to the Hudson River Artists Guild, which is an invitational group of 12 professional artists who live, paint, and show their work in the area that was home to the Hudson River School painters.

Jamie has taught painting workshops at Frederic Church’s Olana Historic Site, as well as for Scenic Hudson and Putnam Arts Council. Her paintings have been featured in USA Weekend, The Journal News, Plein Air Magazine, Putnam County News and Recorder, the Catskill Region Guide, Poughkeepsie Journal, Hudson Valley Parent Magazine, and Bedford Record Review.

Jamie paints mostly in oils and acrylics, but frequently uses other mediums such as pastel, gouache, watercolor, pen and ink and casein Her versatility has led artists, retailers, and art manufacturers such as Golden Artist Colors and Stillman & Birn, to seek her out for product testing and advice.

Most of the time, Jamie paints from life. Her subjects range from portraits, architecture and figures, to animals, landscapes and still life. Plein air landscapes are her favorite subjects (especially the Hudson River and its surroundings, and Catskill Mountains), and she exhibits constantly in many galleries and shows. Her teachers are among the most widely known and well-respected artists of our time, including Marc Hanson, Kenn Backhaus, David Taylor, Alvaro Castagnet, Charles Reid, Kim English, Rae Smith, Alan Reingold, David Dunlop and Wende Caporale Greene.

Jamie paints every day, and although her preference is small format, she also paints 24×36″ and larger on location and in the studio. Her work resides in private collections in Canada and Europe, as well as throughout the United States. She maintains two studios in the Hudson Valley, but prefers the “outdoor” studio!

Artist statement:
My paintings are an extension of the way I view the world around us. I am a self-proclaimed color junkie with an addiction to painting outdoors. Standing in the midst of nature’s sights and sounds, and attempting to capture the experience in paint, is food for my soul. It is a challenge that never gets old, since each day is a brand new experience, and every painting tells its own story. I hope those who view my work can feel some of the wonder that inspires me as my brushes drag across the surface laden with color. For these reasons, I work from life, and gain my inspiration directly from the source whenever possible.
