Biography

Jami has always loved a good story. As a child she would secretly read by moonlight well past her bedtime. As she got older she collected comic books, became mesmerized by the advent of digital animation, and developed a passionate interest in the relationship between story and pictures. She moved from her hometown of Madison, Wisconsin to Vancouver, BC where she studied digital animation and VFX at Vancouver Film School. She has worked as a Digital Artist and Texture Painter on several films including Avatar, Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Captain America. Driven by her wild imagination, she is now honing her illustration skills, and putting pen to paper to create her own picture books. After living in Madison, Los Angeles and London, she has returned to Vancouver where she currently lives with her husband and two children.
