Jamie Lee Cook is a Minneapolis based painter and illustrator.
Self taught, my paintings are drawn from my experiences as a homeless teen and young adult as well as dealing with the aftermath. learning how to function in society in the midwest. Between the ages of 14 and 25 I was a street kid hitchhiking and hopping trains around North America. My painting use allegory and narrative that circles around the concept of identity and belonging, subcultural markers and human ritual.
