Jacques Lamy first came to America on business in 1985, and while visiting Dallas, he saw a vibrant, dynamic city and chose to make it his home. By the time of his passing in 2016 he had become an institution in the Dallas design community and was known nationally as a respected artist with artistic sensibility and classical European training and the dynamic energy of his adopted home city.


Born in Paris in 1946 and raised in the heart of an idyllic French countryside near the Loire Valley, Jacques Lamy began painting at a very early age. Jacques completed his formal artistic training at the prestigious Ecole Nationale Superieur des Arts Decoratifs (Paris) in 1971. While there, he received the highest peer recognition in European Arts; the coveted Prix de Rome award for painting.


Jacques Lamy’s career as an artist, designer and art teacher took him from his native France to life abroad in Spain, Africa, and the United States. His broad artistic interests and his classic training in art and design have enabled him to enjoy a wide variety of artistic experiences from designing furniture, lamps, tapestries, and elegant garden statuary to creating large scale murals for public viewing and enjoyment.


In addition to his renowned mural work, Jacques received international recognition for his popular line of decorative fresco paintings, which can be found in finer homes, restaurants, hotels and offices.


When not producing work for his clients, Jacques personal artistic style is very much a melding of old and new – a merging of a classically trained artist with a modern artistic vision. The medium is multi-media and the composition has a modern, abstract quality but the Old World training in design and composition lends the whole an air of classical grace.
