Jamie Townsend grew up on a farm in Springfield, Vermont and traveled through Europe where he became enchanted by the abstract expressionists of Eastern Europe. Jamie graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in illustration at Ringling College of Art and Design. Community art is at the heart of the super-size works Jamie paints and sculpts both in the U.S. and Europe.
He gave his hometown of Springfield a priceless gift of art murals that can be seen on the WPL Plein Air Walk”. Of his work, he says, “I react to what is there, bringing the viewer from chaos to peace. I want to get the viewer in a playful mood with colors and imagery.” Jamie’s web site is http://jamietownsendart.com
