OCTAVIA JACKSON was drawn to illustration and printmaking after studying Graphic Design in Chicago at DePaul University. She became passionate about illustration when she saw the underrepresentation of women of color like herself in the world of art. Geared with a sketchbook and a dream, she set out to illustrate the colorful women, to champion social justice, and to speak up for those who are underrepresented and left out. She now lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan with her fiancé and two cats.
