A longtime lover of art, Jamie Butterworth joined her children in taking art classes when they were young, and now enjoys painting landscapes, abstracts, and still lifes in oil and acrylic. She was the Arts Chair at her daughters' elementary school for several years where she developed a visual and performing arts program that included classes during and after school. She hired and assisted teachers, taking best practices from what she observed. Jamie has been enjoying teaching her own classes for the past few years. She believes that every person is an artist whether they realize it or not. "There are so many different forms and materials, it's just a matter of finding what resonates with each person."
Jamie has two daughters and a fabulous husband, and is past President of the Burbank Art Association, active volunteer for the Burbank Arts for All Foundation, and enjoys singing around town with her band, Jamie and The Silver Dollars.
