Jamie is an English artist with a BFA in Experimental Studio Art from Hartford Art School, USA, class of 1991. Having crewed on a peace boat and campaigned for environmental groups in his youth, Jamie’s socio-political interests often influence his work. With a career-long commitment to experimentation he focuses largely on the body using traditional and novel materials, applying many unusual processes. Often exploring emotive subjects his work tends to court controversy. --- His most famous work is The Great Wall of Vagina, an eight metre long wall sculpture created from plaster casts of 400 women’s genitals. Five years in the making and entirely self-funded, it typifies Jamie’s artistic determination. Appearing in numerous medical and educational texts it is championed for combating genital anxieties. It has become a hugely influential feminist artwork, which literally changes people’s lives. It has been displayed at the Triennale Museum in Milan in 2013, twice in London at the Mall Galleries in 2015 and the Hay Hill Gallery on Cork Street in 2012 and at the artist's studio in Brighton in 2011. --- Jamie is also a successful commissioned artist, creating figurative sculptures in bronze, plaster, glass and fibreglass. He is also increasingly known for his scanner photography, producing life size body portraits, collaged from many images. --- With his work constantly in the media, Jamie has gained an international reputation a leading underground artist. Publically speaking on subjects such as art versus pornography and the importance of art as an engine of social change, he remains a campaigner and advocate for many causes. He exhibits frequently, has appeared in several art books and has private collectors around the world.
