Your Bio

My full name is Jodie Marie Anne Richardson Traugott, aka jm-ART!

Most of this work I call "Numinous Nana". Numinous means "supernatural, mysterious; filled with a sense of the presence of divinity, holy; appealing to the higher emotions or to the aesthetic sense, spiritual" and all that seemed like a perfect name for these photographs, as I feel that EVERYTHING has a spirit, a spark of the Divine Creative power within. Nana, a nickname for Arianna, has become the face of that creative spark for me, my blank canvas, my muse. She also happens to be my granddaughter.


BY PUSHING ARTISTIC BOUNDARIES USING TRADITIONAL ART MATERIALS AS WELL AS CONTEMPORARY DIGITAL TECHNIQUES, I WILL SHARE WITH YOU THE DANCE OF OUR SOULS.


My companion website is http://www.jm-art.com for paintings and other kinds of photos as well as a full artist's biography.

All of these photos are available as PRINTS on paper or canvas. Please contact me for pricing and sizes at jmartkt@yahoo.com
or go to Fine Art America http://jodie-traugott.artistwebsites.com

I have added an entirely new gallery to this website.
It is called PAINTED PHOTOGRAPHIC "JEWELS".
I am very excited about this work and I really hope you enjoy it also! There are more "Jewels" on my Etsy shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/JMdashART
Hope you can drop in to visit that site too!
