Jamie Morris earned a degree from the Alberta College of Art & Design in 1997, majoring in Visual Communications. He added to his formal education the following summer as he was accepted into the Illustration Academy in Kansas City, Missouri.
He returned to Calgary to begin his freelance illustration career and a few short years later, had compiled numerous high-profile projects and a handful of awards from the Society of Illustrators. It was at this time that the painterly qualities of his oils made a smooth transition to the walls of art galleries.
Jamie now enjoys a nice balance of commissioned illustration projects and personal gallery work. As well, Jamie teaches illustration part-time at ACAD.
