Visual Arts; Fiber and Textile Art
Jamie Lynn Williams is a fiber artist, employing hand and machine embroidery as an intricate form of marking. Her general practice features various types of needlework from embroidery to needle tatting. In her work Williams uses these thought-to-be constricting, decorative, and somewhat antiquated crafts to develop an expressive language. Williams’ work exists in the tension between craft and fine art, never settling on one formula for merging these contexts. The artist’s role as maker and identity as a woman are central to her work. Williams continues to explore themes of women and labor and the presence of the handmade object by engaging viewers in a process that is labor intensive, craft-based, and tactile.
Jamie Lynn Williams attended Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, where she received her Bachelor’s degree in art and psychology. After graduating, she opened her studio practice in Easthampton, MA. She has since relocated her studio to the Circle City Industrial Complex in her hometown of Indianapolis, IN, where she is currently practicing.

“I love art you can feel. I love color and texture. Organic shapes inspire me and nature absolutely fascinates me. I am particularly drawn towards natural elements like the patterns of leaves, the curling branches of trees and the soft shapes of clouds. When I look closely at a tree for instance… I feel as though underneath it all, everything is connected with everything else and also with the source of all life. In my art, I wish to capture these natural objects, not recreate them exactly, but to convey the essential quality of the forms as if the viewer is experiencing them in a dream. The real beauty of it is, I often don’t truly know where a painting is going until it’s finished… all I know is that in the end, it just has to feel right.” -Nanette Winter
