I’m Inspired By…from Jamie


On Thursdays, I share one reader’s inspirations with you. Today’s inspirations are from Jamie Ribisi-Braley.  Jamie is an artist living in Manchester, Maine with her husband Brian and sister Joy, along with whom she is opening up Sweetland Artist Retreat and Bed & Breakfast.   She likes to get her hands into anything possible and you can see the results on her website, in her Etsy shop and in the joint Etsy shop she runs with her sister.

Jamie has just recently gotten back into painting with encaustic, which is a mixture of hot beeswax, resin, and pigment.  As a result of her new found passion, she have come across some fantastic artists and wanted to share them with you!

the autumn of my departure” by Bridgette Guerzon Mills

Bridgette Guerzon Mills– I’ve been in love with her work for years and she’s a major reason I’ve gotten into the medium.  Her images have a haunting tranquility to them that just makes me melt.  I love her mixed media approach to encaustic painting.


“Cloud Study 2” by Tangled Sky Studio

Tangled Sky Studio
– I have just been introduced to her paintings and have fallen in love with the layers and the soft colors.  These paintings somehow take you back to childhood with their innocence.

“no. 37” by Michele Bosak

Mimidoodles– I love to keep an eye on Michele’s shop to see what she adds next!  The best part of her paintings is what she’s not saying…those beautiful and thoughtful blank spaces.  Her melding of drawing and painting is inspirational!  I learn tons just by staring at her paintings.
