Hey there!

I’m Veronica Miller Jamison and I’ve been drawing and creating ever since I was little kid growing up in Pittsburgh. 

Making things is in my bones. Jewelry, crochet, sewing, and of course, drawing and painting — you name it, I’ve tried it.

Now, I’m an artist and illustrator living in Philadelphia. I started out by creating Christmas cards that featuring women of color, and I now work across a variety of disciplines — portraits, patterns, stationery, children’s books and more.

I work primarily in watercolor and inks. Vibrant, saturated colors are my favorite thing to play with. I like to experiment with creating textures and movement with brushstrokes.


My background is in fashion design, illustration and trend research, so color stories, shapes and movement are central to my work. I love creating decorative art and pattern designs for textiles and surfaces - artwork that works great for home decor, gifts, stationery and more.

This year, I have added "children's book illustrator" to my resume. My first book, “A Computer Called Katherine,” was published by Little, Brown and Company in March 2019.

I have a particular passion for teaching, and helping people embrace their creative side. I am the fashion illustration instructor at Made Institute in Philadelphia, and have been part of the adjunct faculty in the fashion design and merchandising department at Drexel University.

I also do live painting for events and brand activations. Check out the time-lapse video below of my live fashion painting process.



a few of my favorite commissions

Every project that I take on is a joy! These ones were particularly fun because I got to do something new and challenging.


I was commissioned by Shea Moisture to create this hair care-inspired coloring wall for their activation at BeautyCon LA in 2016. I created line drawings of various hair types and styles, multiple beauty tools (most of which I use myself) and Shea Moisture products to put together the design for this 20-foot-by-8-foot installation.



In the fall of 2017, the lovely author Nicole Blades released “Have You Met Nora?,” a novel about hidden identity and family secrets. For the launch party in New York, we set up a masquerade-themed live-painting station. Guest would come and choose their favorite decorative masks, and I’d paint their portraits as favors to take home. Tons of fun!



This is my first children’s book! I had the lovely opportunity to work the amazing people at Little, Brown and Company to create the artwork for “A Computer Called Katherine: How Katherine Johnson Helped Put America On The Moon,” written by Suzanne Slade. This was my first time taking on such a long-term project (we spent a year and a half on the art!), and it has been one of my most rewarding experiences as an illustrator thus far. I can’t wait to share it with you!

  • My first career was in broadcasting. I was a producer at NPR for seven years.

  • I have a master’s degree in Fashion Design. I totally geek out about fashion history and the way trends develop and evolve.

  • I wear jumpsuits more than anything else. They’re so easy! Throw one on, add a necklace plus your favorite shoes, and bam! Style in an instant.

  • I’ve lived in Boston, D.C. and now Philadelphia, and I’ve spent a lot of time in New York. I’m a total East Coast city girl. But my favorite place to visit is New Orleans.

  • Speaking of which, I really love beignets.
