Jamie Sanin is a visual artist, educator, and organizer living in New York's Hudson Valley.
Raised in Orange County NY with B.S. in Visual Arts Education from SUNY New Paltz, her interest in teaching sprouted from her own experience with the arts; in addition to visual art, Jamie also studied dance, music, and theatre from a young age. Each experience provided her not only with a breadth of cultural knowledge but also the opportunity to consider the importance of community care via accessible arts, for which she is an advocate.
Through her artwork, Jamie aims to create cultural commentary using a visual language and explores themes of identity, perception, and representation within the arts. She believes that creating and sharing stories through the arts is vital to human growth, communication, and history as a whole. Jamie is also the founder of CelebrateWomxn845, whose mission is to organize, recognize, and celebrate women, femme, and nonbinary creatives via pop-up events across NY's Hudson Valley. Typically, she can be found giving a compliment, wearing glitter, singing karaoke, or dancing with friends old and new.
