About Jaime Leigh

Hello! My name is Jaime Leigh and I am a photographic artist based in Lone Tree, Colorado. Making photographs and creating art is not only my vocation, but it is an evolving journey of learning and connecting with life through a lens. Throughout my everyday living, I get to make pictures and art with the intent of sharing what I see with you. When we share our vision with other people, then their creative awareness may be heightened or they may become more inspired. For me, being committed to the work and nurturing creativity to share with the world is a vital part of growing as an artist and brings purpose to my life. When the refurbished window is married to the photograph, it becomes a true piece of fine art that shines a new light in your space and brings a smile to your face!

Take a look at the process behind the creation of the frames. 

A "Jaime Leigh" Window Photo Frame Journey

Finding these run-down old rustic window frames is definitely an adventure! They are pretty beat up and are in bad condition. Occasionally I will go to building supply stores, estate sales or antique stores, but I have the most fun at junkyards. Salvage shops are the most inspiring places. There are treasures waiting to be found when I do a little digging! Upon discovering antique window pane frames at these places, they bring a smile to my face. The wheels in my head start turning as the windows are calling my name! It’s like finding them for the first time, over and over again.  

The beauty of restoring a window pane frame is taking something that is flawed and worn-out and bringing it back to life. These window pane frames have a story and they’ve been on a journey, kind of like you and me. They once were brand new, shiny new paint, poured glass - put in a house or a building to serve a purpose. Sometime in the past they were knocked on, banged into, rained on, scratched, or cracked. The paint started to chip and the wood was old and the window was no longer able to withstand the weather. The house was either torn down or the windows were taken out to be replaced. These antique windows have a great amount of character, imperfection and tenacity. With some love, attention and kindness they serve purpose again and become a Jaime Leigh creation!

Through Your Window

The most exciting part of the process is choosing my photographs for fine art prints to be mounted in the frames. Most of the hard work and labor comes before choosing the image. Once the window photo frame is painted, sanded, stained, waxed and the natural wood shines through the colors, then the image is easier to choose. It is a pleasure to see the photograph and frame come together, as if they were meant to be all along.

Enjoy looking Through Your Window. You can choose what you want to see every day!

To God be the Glory,

Jaime Leigh
