During his studies in illustration at DeMontfort University in Leicester, England, Jamie was runner-up for the coveted Macmillan Prize for his work on Flap Doodle, a charming story set on an English farm. Since his graduation in 1994, he has illustrated close to 50 childrenís books, a large percentage of which have been quirky, eccentric stories. He has just completed the interior illustrations for a series of Jigsaw Jones chapter books by James Preller (Scholastic USA), which he enjoyed for the chance it gave him to develop characters over a five-book run. His interests apart from illustration include soccer, music and travel. After four consecutive years of holidays in Italy, Jamie decided to live in Tuscany for several years so that he can enjoy its food, wine, climate and people on a daily basis. Currently, he is now living back in London.|
Below are his recent projects, Mystery at the Museum and The Big Top Circus Mystery written by Karen Kaufman Orloff (Peter Pauper Press), Julianís Glorious Summer, The Julian Stories, Tiger Tells All by Ann Cameron (Tamarind), Martin Luther King, Jr. by Marion Dane Bauer (Scholastic), This is My Bible by Christina Goodings (Lion Children's Books), Class Party written by Eve Tandy (Mc Graw Hill) and window display for Walter British Bears.
