Jaymee Kjelland was born and raised in Fargo, ND.  She studied art at Moorhead State University then attended the University of North Dakota graduating with a degree in Education.  She has taught pre-school through graduate school: in a 2 room rural school. Standing Rock Reservation, inner city Los Angeles, CSU Bakersfield and UC Irvine.  

She was a consultant in the Caifornia Department of Education. After 43 years in California she spent some time as a fan dancer in Paris and a snake handler in India but soon tired of that. So she moved to Minnesota because she missed Norwegians and the weather!

After retirement she returned to art and mosaics are her current medium. For her making her mosaics is like painting with stained glass, stones and other interesting things she finds.  While Minnesota landscapes are a common theme in her work she also enjoys creating abstract pieces.  She is open to taking commisioned work.
