I am a watercolor artist who aims to help others see that the natural beauty around us is not a background to our lives but a foundation to all of our memories…regardless of where you live.

My style is always searching for honesty, simplicity, and thoughtfulness. My absolute favorite days are spent outside with the people I love (and puppy, Lucy).

I'm Jaye

about me

I am a Florida born and raised watercolor artist. I graduated from Florida State University with my BFA in painting in 2014, worked for 4 years as a textile designer for a company in NYC and am now working full time running this company that I love. 

My Story

I was a painfully shy and insecure kid, who, when lots of other things in my life did not make sense, found my greatest source of communication in creating things. I was (am) extremely sensitive and that came at a price of seeing and feeling absolutely everything. 

And then my wonderful grandmother taught me to watercolor paint.

Painting and creating gave me an outlet to express all the things I’d been feeling and thinking. Like releasing a dam…I have been painting ever since. 

Among the wonderful things my grandmother and family has taught me is a love for outdoors. There is a spirituality to nature that I've witnessed time and time again through the people around me. I am so grateful for that.

 

The natural beauty around us is not a background to our lives but a foundation on which we build all of our memories…regardless of where you live.

 

This world is a beautiful, temporary home that we’re given, and I want to appreciate the beauty of it.
