Jamie Roadkill is a visual artist who features anatomically correct skeletons in her work, which are then gilded in 24k gold or stained with various inks. She sources animals from road or natural deaths and processes them for their bones, finding significance in the arduous process. She taught herself to articulate using veterinary reference materials, Lee Post's "Bone Building Book" series, and much trial and error. Her work promotes awareness of the stigmas around death and decay, and the power of transformation. Her work has been featured on VICE, Juxtapoz.com, and more.
Jamie is originally from Pennsylvania, and grew up in central New Jersey. She currently resides on a 50 acre farm in upstate New York with her son and artist Katie Innamorato. She holds a BA in International Business and will be attending Rutgers University New Brunswick for Biology beginning in Fall 2017, an interest sparked by her work in osteology.
