City Life Paintings, Jeff Jamison: Artist Showcase

Hello art and beauty lovers!

So, we were walking around downtown in Charleston this past Sunday, just enjoying the day, the scenes, (the dessert!), the waterfront views, and the beautiful homes…  While on our lazy-day walk, I was literally stopped dead in my tracks by the artwork in the window of the Ella Walton Richardson gallery.  You can clearly see why, I’m sure…  Unfortunately, the gallery was closed as it was Sunday afternoon, so I snapped a couple of photos to share with you.

Jeff Jamison is a masterful painter who believes that the only thing standing between himself and a masterpiece is his own hands, and, in my opinion, he errs on the side of “masterpiece” crazy often!  I love the painterly brush strokes and the expert smooth blending, combined with the stark shapes and textured areas.

Jeff paints snapshots of everyday life, full of energy, motion, and shapes and colors.  And let me tell you, these pieces are inedible in person.

I love these painting because they inspires me.  I love segmenting shades and shapes within a scene and Jeff Jamison does that so, so well.  Love it, don’t you?

Most days you can find me, in the studio with my little girls, speckled in oil paint (drinking too much coffee), creating artwork for collectors around the world and collaborating with select brands. Check out my artwork on
