Here is a hearty, albeit overdue, welcome to Alla Prima’s new Project Assistant, Jamie Holmberg.
A South Dakotan and an art lover through and through, Jamie was raised in Mitchell, South Dakota where she spent many childhood days at the Dakota Discovery Museum where her mother worked. There she was surrounded by the artwork of South Dakota greats such as Charles Hargens, Harvey Dunn and Oscar Howe. This ingrained a lifelong love for museum environments and art history within her.
Jamie earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of South Dakota in 2012 with an emphasis in darkroom photography. While earning her degree, she worked with the photographic archives collection at the University of South Dakota Libraries and, during summers, at the Dakota Discovery museum.
She topped off her University days by diving into the world of private art galleries and commercial framing for a number of years.
She loves to see the world through travel and the lens of her camera. Among her most memorable overseas adventures was an encounter with her favorite painting at the Louvre, The Raft of the Medusaby Theodore Gericault. This iconic work of Romanticism took her breath away.
When she isn’t busy as Alla Prima’s Project Assistant, serving clients at an area Scandinavian interiors store, or pursuing photography and travel, she finds her Zen with yoga and her cat, Basil.
So glad to have her on board!
