Jamilah Monroe was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1997. She began attending Gateway Arts in 2019.
Monroe is an emerging artist with a rich imagination and a distinct style. In her paintings and illustrations, Monroe creates a whimsical world of anthropomorphic animal characters. She develops details about the characters; their names, occupations, style; and more. Monroe is inspired by nature, music, and her favorite books.
Monroe’s work has been exhibited at The Gateway Gallery.
