Hey! My name is Jamie Koala; I am the CEO, Artist and Designer at KoalaArtAndDesign.com

 I formed my company as a teen. However, back then the company only offered creative services such as graphic design, art and even animation (…yeaaaah I got my start making Myspace banners and layouts for bands). As I grew older, I began exploring different mediums in art, apparel design, and jewelry making which ultimately lead to the expansion of Koala into an apparel brand. When I went off to college with the intention of receiving a bachelors in Consumer Science but my time at college was cut short by a chronic neurological disorder that matured by my second year. I was forced to do a medical withdrawal from college and spent that next year on bed rest. I spent those (and still am) next few years learning to live with the massive changes I had to make to my life (check out my personal blog for more information). Through the illness I have always used my business and art as an escape, it helped me through the harder times, rough medications and loss of a “normal life”. I am thankful for every day I am able to work and create and even more excited to be able to share my work with the outside world! 

Although now the brand Koala is my main focus, I have had my work with bands internationally and had my work featured in stores such as FYE, Hot Topic, Walmart and Best Buy. Some clients include Lamb Of God, Whitechapel, A Perfect Circle, Storenvy and many more. Thank you so much for checking out my work.  -Jamie Koala
