Hi! I am an illustrator, designer, and crafter based in Manila.
I love working with different media — from watercolors, colored pencils, and digital illustrations to ceramics. 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 silly dance moves. 
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.
Besides books, my illustrations have appeared in calendars, packaging, murals, and apparel. Previous clients include Adarna House, Room to Read, Lampara Books, UNICEF, Child Rights Coalition Asia, Adobe, and Wonderbooks UK.
DREAM PROJECTS: I would love to design prints for clothes, homeware and wallpapers, make my own Google Doodle, design my dream playground, work on the branding and decor for a coffee shop or a preschool, make 100 picture books, and make anything for BTS (!!). 

When I’m not drawing, you can find me in the garden talking to the plants, or brushing my cats, Kiki and Popo.
For illustration projects outside of the Philippines, please contact my agents at The Bright Agency
For everything else, email hello@jamiebauza [dot] com.
