ABOUT JAMIE STROUD

  • Graduated from SVA with a BFA degree, and FIT with a MA in Illustration. I have been freelancing since 1998 doing mostly editorial illustrations, magazine designs, and advertising design.

    I teach illustration and design at local colleges and universities.

    I write many of my stories as well as illustrate them. My primary choice of medium is pen and ink with digital color.

    I also have a wide range of interests that include travel, film, history, sports and cooking, which I believe helps me to be well rounded and open to new ideas.

    I enjoy my work, my family and the outdoors.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • It was the sweetness and humor that attracted me to children books growing up. So it is important to put that in every piece I create. My primary choice of medium is pen and ink with digital color, but I also work with oils and gouache. As an adjunct professor and former art director I enjoy working in a collaborative environment. For meeting deadlines, following guidelines, and creating professional artwork call me.
