Jaime Crain is a twenty-two-year-old painter and graphic designer based in the Spokane-Coeur d’ Alene area. Jaime works primarily in oil paint, and her work explores the beauty and power of the human mind. She combines figures with nonobjective environments and embraces heightened, often unnatural color. Jaime graduated summa cum laude from Whitworth University in the spring of 2022 with a bachelor’s degree in fine art and graphic design. Jaime aspires to expand her freelance design business and also hopes to form a community arts cooperative. She plans to earn an MFA within the next five years, and she sees teaching as a part of her future either at the university level or through alternative community programs.
