Jamie is an artist that can capture the sunshine and nostalgia of Oahu's North Shore, like no other. When I look at her paintings I instantly feel transported back to the quiet, sunny, tropical beaches of my North Shore hometown, right where I first fell in love with the ocean.
Now that I live in Hilo, on the Big Island, the North Shore of Oahu seems so far away, especially the white sands and crystal clear waters I knew so well. Way over here on the rocky black sands of Hilo, I often find myself still longing for my beautiful North Shore. Swaying palm trees, bright plumerias, perfect surf, sea turtles lounging on the sand, and beautiful landmarks such as Haleiwa Bridge, are just some of the images that come to mind, and many of the subjects of Jamie Swim's paintings. You can tell through her artwork that she has a deep love for the ocean, Hawaii, and the whimsical, happy nature of island life.
I wanted to share just a few of her pieces here (with permission), that I simply adore. Anyone that has spent time on the North Shore would love having one these hanging in their home! Myself included!
