wayman_jamie_galleryshot_conversation_175wJamie Wayman knows water. A competitive swimmer turned artist, her paintings have a unique authenticity. Still swimming at the master’s level, she captures water’s visual magic – ripples, reflections, distortions – in paint.

wayman_jamie_galleryshot_largepaintingsJamie Wayman completed her BA in painting and drawing at the University of Utah. She won number of honors during her studies, including the distinguish Ethel Armstrong Rolapp award. HORNE Fine Art has featured the range of her work since 2003, including not only large and small paintings but also etchings and woodcuts.

Wayman continues to receive local and national attention. Salt Lake Magazine identified her as an artist to watch and Southwest Art named her as one of the country’s important emerging artists in “21 under 31.” The Salt Lake Visitor’s Bureau spotlighted a work in its Spring/Summer 2007 Visitor’s Guide. And in August of 2009, her show “Making a Splash” received a full page review in the Salt Lake Tribune.

Wayman’s works have been widely collected in Utah as well as nationally, and are featured in private collections from California to Florida.
