Jaime McNair is an abstract artist and mental health advocate who received a diagnosis of ADHD as an adult. She now combines bold, vibrant palettes and a variety of mediums, with loose layering, intuitive mark-making, and influences from abstraction, expressionism, and street art, to visually represent the delightfully chaotic, internal world of life with the condition.
McNair is an autodidactic artist who loves to create, yet has not pursued a formal art education. Instead, she has continued to independently develop her artistic practice while completing a college diploma in Broadcasting, a B.A. in Psychology, and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Communicative Disorders (why an ADHD diagnosis took so long to pursue is still up for debate).
These pursuits have helped to shape and broaden the central theme explored through McNair's work- that it's ok to be an outlier, and that diversity is beautiful and can be celebrated. Her mixed media works on canvas and paper visually represent the beauty, benefits, and strengths of ADHD.
