Biography courtesy of Artists for Kids:
Following graduation from high school in 1967, Jamie enrolled at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island and moved from her family home in the mid-west to study art and anthropology. Her undergraduate years in Rhode Island helped focus her artistic strengths as she began to study drawing and etching in earnest. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree [1971], she moved west again to pursue a Master of Arts degree at Iowa University in Iowa City, Iowa. There she continued to build on her knowledge of print making, etching and love of anthropology. Following her MA [1974], and realizing there was so much more to explore, Jamie continued to pursue her art in depth and went on to receive an MFA in print making in 1976.

It was during this final year of university in Iowa that she met anthropologist Richard Shutler. They became friends and when Dr. Shutler was offered a teaching position at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby [Canada] in 1978, she moved north with him. They were married later that year. Since that time Jamie has maintained a studio in Vancouver where she has pursued her painting and monotype print making for the last 26 years. Being a perennial adventure seeker, finding fun and excitement in all she does, when not in the studio, she travels extensively and continues to find inspiration and energy from dance, skating and gymnastics. She is presently exploring the movement and discipline of circus arts. Jamie Evrard and Richard Shutler currently live in Vancouver, BC.

Jamie Evrard has an extensive exhibition history. Her work is included in numerous private and public collections in Canada and in the United States including the Canada Council Art Bank in Ottawa, the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Seattle Arts Commission Public Works Collection, the Burnaby Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, Maltwood Art Museum, University of Victoria, The Claridge Collection, Montreal and, the Artists For Kids Gallery in North Vancouver.
