Jamie Romanet (b. Farmington, CT 1978) is an American painter living in France. She received a B.A in English and a B.A in Environmental Geography in 2000. A painter since childhood, after her undergraduate studies she decided to go to Florence, Italy to receive her Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Painting (2004).

Since, her paintings have been featured in numerous blogs and art magazines such as ArtMaze magazine, Brenda, and I Like Your Work, among others.
