Jamina started her career as a figurative artist working under mentor and colleague, Lacey Lewis in Kansas City a decade ago. After the birth of her 2 kids, she felt the need for change and dove head first into illustration.
Jamina spends most of her time with her potty trained best friend and their boss who cries way too much at the work place. "Hanging out with a 1 year old and 4 year old," Jamina explains, "can be riot in both senses of the word. There are times we have so much fun drawing and painting together, and other times when we realize the place is a disaster." Her live in boss keeps her on her toes with feeding, diaper changes, and infant chases all over the house. "Working from home allows me to be fully immersed in my kids' lives which is very important to me. It's not perfect by any means, but with my husband's support, we manage quite well."
