Jaimee Todd  is a self-taught artist based in Queens, New York. Born in New Rochelle, New York, she has experimented with various art forms ranging from watercolor to drawing and ultimately photography. No matter the form, vibrant colors have always been a trademark of her work.

After earning her B.A. from Michigan State University in Interdisciplinary Studies (with emphases in Spanish, Portuguese, Business and Latin American Studies) and her J.D. from University of Miami School of Law, Jaimee actively pursued a career in art after relocating to New York City in 2004.

Her background as a painter has fueled her current body of abstract photography work that she refers to as “Inkscapes”, which were the subject of a solo exhibition in 2014. Jaimee has also exhibited in institutions that include the New York Mercantile Exchange and Mint Museum Uptown in Charlotte, NC. Additionally, she is a regular contributor to Postcards From the Edge, an annual charity benefit that supports artists living with AIDS in New York City. In March 2016, her first video installation work was featured as part of the Harlem for Flint benefit fundraiser at the National Black Theatre.

Latest news from Jaimee:

I’m honored to say that my #Inkscape photography has been selected to be included in the inaugural journal of Mfon: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora!

This first issue will feature 100 women photographers of African descent and will include essays written by scholars, journalists and #artists. The journal was named for the late #Nigerian photographer Mfon Eissen who’s self-portrait series “The Amazon’s New Clothes” chronicled her radical mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Her series was included in the #Brooklyn Museum of Art’s exhibition “Committed to the Image: Contemporary Black Photographers.” but she died before her images debuted at the museum.

Of all the milestones in my art career, this one is the most meaningful because my work has been selected alongside the works of my peers: #Black women photographers who too often go unnoticed. #BlackGirlMagic is real.

Many thanks to talented co-editor @laylahb and @adamadelphine for this incredible opportunity.

Mfon will be published this fall and will be available for pre-order. Stay tuned for further updates!
