Illustrator and artist Jamie Lee Reardin grew up in Toronto, Canada and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. Jamie studied Fashion Communications and Design at Ryerson University, where she focused her studies on Advanced Illustration.
As a young girl, Jamie was fascinated by the magical characters created by visionaries like Walt Disney and Tim Burton, and dreamed of a career in animation. Her first foray into art was by recreating these popular characters—including Cruella de Vil, the Corpse Bride and Beetlejuice—through her own unique vision. Since, her style as an artist and illustrator has evolved immensely, and she often turns to the equally stimulating world of fashion to create her signature gazelle-like figures, characterized by uncomfortably long necks and impossibly thin silhouettes. Jamie sites brands like Christian Dior and Thom Browne as constant sources of inspiration.
Jamie has been commissioned by Dior Beauty, New York City Ballet, Moda Operandi, Hugo Boss, and Nike to create campaigns and custom illustrations. She also works as a fine artist, regularly creating paintings that marry her background in illustration with her love of visionaries like Picasso and Dali.
