Five Questions for…Jamie Dougherty

Jamie is so amazingly talented, when I finally got to meet her last CHA it was the coolest- plus, she is just the sweetest girl in the world!

What do you do to get into your creative zone?

I thrive on chaos, I need noise around for me to work. I over think things when it’s too quiet.  My brain starts to hurt and smoke begins to escape my ears.  It must be something to do with having kids.  If I couldn’t deal with chaos I would be in real trouble lol.  But they inspire me so it’s all worth it. Here is my room.  As you can see I am not a neat freak.  And I LOVE paint :)

Do you ever create hidden meanings or messages in your work?

Unfortunately I am not that clever lol.  I do create things though that I don’t post online, that I keep for myself.   

 If your creative work were edible, what would it taste like?

It would definitely be chocolate cake :)  Sweet, rich with substance, and only good in small amounts ;)


What is your favorite creation? 

My favorite creation would have to be this LO of the kiddos.  It was a turning point in my style that made me realize I could return to my fine arts abilities.  Also everything went together perfectly, which doesn’t happen often.  The picture feels so innocent, the colors and Prima fit so well and the finishing touch of a little Pink Floyd wisdom made for the perfect journaling.  


What is your biggest creative success so far and why?

My biggest success so far is being recognized by my fellow artists.  To have my work appreciated by women who work so hard on their own work and talent, means worlds to me. Working along side the talented people I have in the last year is amazing.

Thank you so much Jamie!
