Jamie Locke is best known for her intricate hand-carved mandalas on wood, metal, glass and leather. A self-taught artist, Jamie is adept at taking a vision and turning it into reality. Her strength is in her hunger for creating, and exploring different methods and mediums, always bearing in mind that in the creative process the vision sometimes evolves into something completely unexpected. “For me, the process of creating a mandala is always one of inspired revelation, elemental surprise, and pure bliss.”

Locke’s work can also be found around Indianapolis through a series of public art projects such as The Harmony Mural, partnering with The Department of Public Words, featuring her mandala designs along the Monon Trail and most recently, #IndyAngelWings, a collaborative mural project with artist Megan Jefferson.

Whether she is carving, drawing or painting, her desire is to always breathe positivity into the world and hopes that her creations will inspire, encourage and uplift. Jamie predominately works creating one of a kind commission works but also posts available pieces here: Available Works

When not creating art of her own, she travels and plays cajon/djembe and a mean shaker egg with wife, Australian singer-songwriter, Martine Locke and mothers two awesome teens, Harley and Alayna.

You can visit Jamie in her studio at Ruckus Makerspace where she is a Resident Artist.
