Meet Your Maker: Jaime Zollars

Things We Love: Fantastic, surreal dreamscapes.

Jaime Zollars finds inspiration in Flemish painters, fairy tales, and flea markets. She paints portraits of people and places far away, dwelling on dark dilemmas and pockets of whimsical fantasy.

Jaime illustrates for books, magazines, gallery walls, and her own amusement. She also chases after her one-year-old son Griffin as he chases neighborhood dogs.

The virtues of downtime
Were Jaime to have any leisure time, she'd most certainly spend it making fanciful paper toys for one and all.

Why we love her
Besides making silk screen and fine art prints for kids and adventurous adults, Jaime makes wonderfully wearable vintage soft t-shirts, cards, and gifts featuring sweet (and sometimes a little bit dark) fairy tale inspired artwork.

You know the dilly, yo: Find Jaime Zollars at Holiday Heist on Saturday 21 November at The Soundry!
