Jamie Q is a queer non-binary artist who makes paintings, drawings, zines, prints, sculptures, garments, quilts, and other textile pieces. They have shown their art and distributed their zines internationally, including notable group shows at Krets Gallery in Sweden, the Luggage Store Annex in San Francisco, and Museum London in Ontario; and solo exhibitions at DNA Artspace in London, L'APPÂT in Brussels, Art Metropole and NO Foundation in Toronto, and Parentheses Gallery & Art Projects in Halifax.

Jamie Q holds a BFA from the Alberta College of Art & Design (2002) and an MFA from Western University (2010). Their academic research focused on the politics and aesthetics of the do-it-yourself ethic, as well as the social potential of art objects and DIY distribution strategies. Their most recent projects work through ideas around arts economies and creative labour, gender and queerness, craft and repurposed materials, and process-based play.

Jamie Q has taught art classes at Western University, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Make Den Sewing Studio. They also worked as a textile artist in Costume for the third season of Star Trek: Discovery.
