Hi! I am an illustrator, designer, and crafter based in Manila.
I love to tell stories with my work, and I am passionate about picture books. I am inspired by colorful scenes from everyday life, nature, children, and dance. I love working with different media — from watercolors, colored pencils, and digital illustrations to ceramics. 
I graduated from Ateneo de Manila University with a degree in BFA Information Design, and received a Loyola Schools Awards for the Arts in Visual Art (Illustration). In 2018, I attended the Summer Illustration Residency at the School of Visual Arts in New York. I was a recipient of the Adobe Creative Residency Community Fund in February 2021. I am a current member and former president of Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang INK), a Philippine association of artists committed to the creation and promotion of illustrations for children. On weekdays, I work as a graphic designer for Studio Dialogo.
When I’m not drawing, you can find me in the garden or talking to my cats, Kiki and Popo.

CONTACT
For projects outside of the Philippines, please contact my agents at The Bright Agency. For everything else, email hello@jamiebauza.com. I am currently unavailable for self-published book projects.

MY DREAM PROJECTS
I would love to design prints for clothes, homeware, and wallpaper, make my own Google Doodle, design my dream playground, work on the branding and decor for a coffee shop, preschool, or plant store, make 100 picture books, and make anything for BTS (!!).
