Jamie Meyers Bisel was born and raised in Beaumont, Texas. She moved to Houston in 1988 for work after graduating from Lamar University. Jamie met Chris, her husband of 23 years, and they have two children, Reagan (20) and Devon (17). Her venture into artwork began recently after her family recovered from flooding three times in 2.5 years. Friends began asking to buy her paintings and her success has grown from there. “I get inspiration from other artists work. When I begin a new painting, I have no idea what the end result will be but I always fall in love with it. I love doing large paintings because I feel abstract work looks more beautiful on a large scale.
