I am thrilled to collaborate with ArtSugar for International Women's Day because besides working with a badass female run company, we have a platform to discuss women's issues. We use our art as an opportunity to spark conversation and normalize infertility. Thank you, Alix and team for bringing this otherwise taboo conversation about in a beautiful and approachable way."Jamie Kushner BlicherThe Glitter Enthusiast
I’m excited to partner with Jamie for this important holiday; her unique approach to art and creative methods to bring awareness to infertility are admirable. Women supporting women is something Jamie and I both stand for!”Alix GreenbergFounder, ArtSugar
MEET THE ARTIST
As a self-taught artist, Jamie started creating mixed-media pieces in high school and continued to do so throughout her college years at New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Today, Jamie’s main medium is ink on paper. She creates these magical abstract pieces by filling the same tool that brings many families hope and rainbow babies with ink (sterile IVF needles). Then releasing the ink over the paper in a way that builds up color and form through careful gesture and thoughtful placement. The way the ink moves across the paper you can easily imagine a mermaid's tail swishing through the colorful pools of ink. Since 2016, Jamie has been using her art to help bring calm and happiness to others who have gone through or are still going through their infertility journeys. As well as those who just want something fun and reflective of their styles in their homes through private commissions. When Jamie is not painting, She works as a lifestyle buyer for gifts & glassware at a national wine, spirits, and gift chain. She is inspired by global design, specifically interior design, and is particularly drawn to the interior design movements coming out of Australia. Jamie lives with her husband, her twin boys, and their labradoodle named Gem in their very noisy house in Rockville, Maryland.
