About the Artist:
As early as Jamie Okuma can remember her life has been in the art world in one way or another. Her mother Sandra was a graphic artist and worked at MCA records when Jamie was a child. During her time there she produced album covers for Lynard Skynyrd and Cher to name a few. After high school Okuma took a few graphic design classes at Palomar College in San Marcos, CA before attending the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM. From the age of 18 she has been a professional artist completely devoted to her art. She has exhibited her work at the Heard Indian market in Phoenix, Az and at the Santa Fe Indian Art Market in Santa Fe, NM. She has garnered a total of five Best in Show Awards. Two from the Heard, and three from the Santa Fe Indian Market. One of only two artists to achieve this distinction. Okuma has work in the permanent collections of The Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Nelson-Atkins Museum and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian
About the Art:
"What has always guided me through hard times is creating and viewing beautiful artwork. Floral beadwork is the epitome of beauty in my eyes. I created these flowers in the traditional Plateau/Great Basin esthetic. Now more thn ever we need to surround ourselves with things that make us feel good. My hope is that these mukluks beautify your collection and have you step foot into that feel good we all need.”
