Jamie Bennett’s fascination with visual art started when she was very young and was greatly influenced by her father who was a sign painter. As a young adult she went on to study Graphic Design and worked in that field for several years but then switched to illustration around 1985. Since then she has illustrated for many clients including:

Margaret Atwood, The Boston Globe, Eating Well, The Globe and Mail, G.Q., Health Council of Canada, Knopf Canada, L.A. Times, Yaan Martel (Life of Pi), McDonalds, Mother Jones, The National Gallery of Canada, National Geographic Kids, The National Post, The New Yorker, Nike, Penguin Canada, RCA Records, Rolling Stone Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Target, The United Way, The Washington Post, Warner Bros, World Wildlife Foundation.

Jamie works, overseen by her two cats, out of her home studio in Toronto, Canada.
