A self-taught artist, Jamie is adept at taking an idea, a vision, or a dream and turning it into reality, whether painted on canvas, etched on a wine glass, or carved into a block of wood. She sees the process as both challenging and thrilling. Her strength is in her hunger for creating, and exploring different methods and mediums, always bearing in mind that in the creative process the dream sometimes evolves into something completely unexpected. Balance is key, and for Jamie the mandala is not only a form of artistic expression—it’s a meditation as well. Like an imaginary palace, the mandala is contemplated, explored, and inhabited during meditation. The mandala’s purpose is to help transform ordinary minds into enlightened ones and to assist with healing. It helps Jamie to create from within, to pour that quiet intention into each mandala she carves. Her desire is always to breathe positivity into the world, starting with her own entourage and traveling out peacefully from there. Locke hopes that her creations will inspire, encourage, and put goodness back into the world. She has sold work across the U.S. and in Australia, Brazil, Canada, and Europe.
