About the artist
Austin based painter, Jamie Rix, works mainly with acrylics on canvas incorporating different mediums to build layers and texture to each piece. Inspiration for her work is taken from observing unique patterns of color in everyday scenes as they pass by and become abstracted and mentally catalogued. Music also play a significant, almost synesthetic, role in the process of making a painting. These catalogued mental images then take on a softer and more lyrical appearance as they are translated onto the canvas. Creating art has become a passion her life that is constantly evolving through a process of discovery.
