Hi friends, I’m Jam! I draw creatures, plants, buildings, things I find on the sidewalk, and unhinged still-life tableaus. For the last three years, I’ve worked as a family educator during free drop-in family programming at the Garfield Park Conservatory, making art in my free time. While I can’t participate as directly right now, I still want to create work that helps people engage with urban biodiversity. Shifting my focus to art full-time means I will be able to tackle larger projects that I’ve been working towards, such as self-published comics, character design, and larger multi-media works. Additionally, I love an excuse to participate in my multi-generational family vocation of mailing people weird art!
