It all started in 1972. I was 7 years old. In 2013, 40 years later… I went public with my art. I had 20 drawings. Now I have over 500 works of art. I have my own company. I sell world wide. To all of you creative minds out there…. shine… shine…shine… – Jamie Pruden
I have been an artist most of my life throughout life’s ups and downs. I turned professional about 7 years ago doing illustrations for animation and voice over work. I’ve worked on such projects as Raven Steals the Light and Legendary Myths Raven Adventures. I am also an actor, voice over artist and up and coming animator who also does concept art for Film and Television pitches.
I always loved to doodle and sketch as far back as I can remember. In grade 10, I won first place for a Christmas Card art competition and got my first job at 13 years old at a t-shirt airbrushing/silk screening shop I received 1st place in 1991 in a art competition for The Calgary Stampede and received a 500 dollar scholarship. Medicine Hat was close by, and that is where I got my first serious art commission and was picked to be one of many artist to paint one of the story boards (#4) on the World Tallest Teepee. I have always tried to dabble in different mediums in art since then, and continue to take on any challenge offered to me. I love working with other talented like minded artists, and being part of ideas that are unique and challenging in many different mediums.
