Considering a new piece of art for your home or office? Haven’t found what you’re looking for? Not to worry! Jamie Kushner Blicher (of Glitter Enthusiast) is an Artist to Get to Know Now.
DC Area Artist Jamie Kushner Blicher
Meet Jamie! She’s the artist behind the creative powerhouse known as Glitter Enthusiast! Jamie is a self-taught artist and has been drawn to creative media for as long as she can remember. In 2016, Jamie was going through the In-Vitro-Fertilization (IVF) process. One day, surrounded by “too many IVF needles,” Jamie decided to grab a sterile one and pump it full of ink. She then pressed all of the liquid out onto a nearby canvas in a satisfying release of so many pent up emotions.
I’m Jamie and my favorite color is Rainbow-Glitter-Unicorn-Mermaid. It’s a Pantone color…I swear!” ~Jamie Kushner Blicher
Jamie started to share this new art process – ink being applied to paper via sterile IVF needles – on social media as a welcome distraction from her “all-encompassing” fertility treatments. What she could never have guessed? The amazing outpouring of support and encouragement that she would receive for both her IVF journey and her beautiful works of art.
Jamie is now the proud mother of twin boys, but the original inspiration behind her artwork lives on. Today, Glitter Enthusiast’s mission is “to educate, support, and empower all women, but especially the 1 in 4 who are going through their own infertility journey.”
The Glitter Enthusiast Team
In 2020, Ashley Fisher joined Glitter Enthusiast as Chief Creative Officer. Ashley professionally photographs all of the artwork and has been instrumental to the introduction of Glitter Goods. What are Glitter Goods you ask? All of the fun products that you can shop with Jamie’s designs on them. Cute masks, stylish headbands, chic pillows… all with Jamie’s signature abstract and IVF positive (think rainbows!) compositions.
