PAINTING ILLUSTRATION DESIGN
I'm a painter, illustrator, and graphic designer living in the Okanagan Valley with my husband and two daughters. My work is high energy with bright and bold color, and I like to explore visual stories and ideas of connection, interaction, expression, and beauty. I earned my BFA in Visual Arts at UBC Okanagan, and I specialize in portrait painting, digital illustration, graphic design, and murals.
Some of my most recent projects include Murals (as JOMAE in collaboration with my husband Dylan Ranney) at an Interior Health Clinic, Ok Tire in Rutland, and Metro Community in Downtown Kelowna, and other artworks commissioned for various companies, Apps, Authors, and Musicians. My work is featured on product designs, merchandise, and in online/print features and interviews. I've had three solo exhibitions, and participated in numerous group exhibitions and live painting events. I am an autotelic creator, and I love mentoring others in their creative aspirations. I've been teaching art classes in a wide range of disciplines for over 10 years. Pre-pandemic, my husband and I ran the New Arts Collective in downtown Kelowna from 2017-2020.
I am available for commissions! My most popular requests are brand packages, digital illustrations, murals, and portrait paintings. Connect with me about your vision, and let's make it happen!
My latest works can be viewed at Intrigue Wines in Lake Country, B.C.
