About Jamie Lester

Vandalia Bronze focuses on large scale public artwork, statues, and monuments. Vandalia Bronze has produced notable works such as The Jerry West Statue, The Hot Rod Hundley Statue, The Don Knotts Statue, The Zackquill Morgan Statue, The Rex Tillerson Statue, The John D Harkey Jr. Statue, The Love Hope Cube, Rising Cardinals, and others.
Lester Sculpture is a fine art business, focusing on smaller scale collectible pieces in bronze, ceramic, and steel.
Nampara Arts Cooperative is located at Jamie Lester’s studio in Morgantown, WV, and provides rentable space to ceramic artists, including equipment and kilns, and public instruction.
I am a creator working in both sculpture, painting,, digital art, and music composition. My sculpture is composed of large scale public artworks in bronze and stainless steel, and smaller scale works in ceramics. steel, and mixed media. I also create sculpture digitally with Zbrush and in virtual reality. My painting is primarily watercolor and oils, and digital tools such as Procreate. My music is composed and performed with my band Lords of Lester. The concepts in my art flow between different mediums, and center on motifs of the human figure, birds, architecture, and social themes. My works are often influenced and contain references to my environment, growing up in an coal mining extraction economic milieu. I strive not to make my work overly didactic, but open to interpretation. I received my BFA at WVU under Bob Anderson and Alison Helm, and studied in Italy and China, notably the cities Jingdezhen and Hangzhou.
