I grew up in White Rock – just a hop, skip and a jump away from Vancouver, British Columbia.
How long have been a Vancouverite?
I moved back to Vancouver roughly 3 years ago after traveling extensively and living in the Middle East. What a contrast to be back in this rainy, mountainous and beautiful city, I love it!
I am an artist and I work at a little studio between Main and Cambie Street. I was a high school art teacher before taking a leap of faith to pursue a career in the arts. During my travels, finding myself as the keener tourist in local art galleries, wondering how to do it myself. It has been a learning experience and I have met so many great people in Vancouver doing amazing things. With this adventure I’m on, no day is the same but this beautiful city stays steady and comforting. My paintings can be seen at jamiesmithstudio.com.
