Jamie Lawrence was born in Ohio, raised in Texas and moved back to Montana in 1991. She considers herself a native Montanan who just happened to be born in the wrong place! Jamie studied Middle Eastern History and Diplomacy at the University of Montana and graduated in 2001. In 2003 she began Last Best Candles, a local handmade candle operation, and sells her craft in stores across the country. Jamie is an active member of the local arts and crafts community and believes above all that you should buy handcrafted and locally made products whenever possible! Jamie is excited to join the Board of the ZACC as a means to help support the arts in the wonderful city of Missoula.
