Jamie P Walker - Artist
I’m Jamie (Pavlich) Walker, an artist residing in Santa Rosa, CA. My studio is located at my home in my garage. I like this set-up and location as it provides me ample natural light and it permits me to take a break when I need to, or jump in at any time.
The world of art as my journey began at childhood. I loved painting and drawing and carried this passion through high school. In college, I took art classes but ultimately changed paths and started a career in ophthalmology. I felt having a conventional job would be more secure. Do I have regrets not getting a degree in Art? “Yes”. But, at the same time, I think it’s what pushed me to actually become an artist.
After years of working as an ophthalmic technician, I finally just quit. I realized that in this one life I have, it should be spent doing what I love. Re-entering the art world happened slowly by taking various courses and workshops while raising two children.
