About Jaime Brett


Jaime Treadwell was born and raised in a suburb of Philadelphia. Treadwell completed his formal art education at the State University of New York at Cortland, and went on to earn his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002. Treadwell’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States and abroad including New York, Miami, Boston, South Korea, Vancouver, Philadelphia, and Chicago. Publications and reviews include New American Paintings, Direct Art Magazine, Philadelphia Inquirer, Miami Times, Philadelphia Weekly, Philadelphia City Paper, and Saatchi Online TV Magazine. Jaime Treadwell lives and works in Philadelphia where he is a full-time Assistant Professor of Art at Delaware County Community College.

Jaime describes his work by saying, “I am intrigued by my social surroundings ranging from small neighborhood cultural identities to grander differences among rural, urban, and suburban life. I find pleasure merging conflicting imagery, design, and color. I often use vivid cheerful colors to masquerade or obscure the realities within my paintings. Recent paintings suggest gypsy-like carnival communities isolated from others, prepared to travel, re-settle, and re-create their own versions of utopia. I fuse imagery from various time periods and cultures to construct a communal habitat for religious icons, fairies, cherubs, nymphs, dancers, and prostitutes that appear to live in a world of harmony”.
