My name is Jesse White. I am an illustrator and muralist creating whimsical, wonder-filled work that explores the power of children and nature, a focus that stems from my background in education and life-long fascination with the natural world. 

A proud Tar Heel, I graduated summa cum laude from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a BFA in Studio Art. After attending Virginia Commonwealth University to earn my master’s degree in Art Education, I spent my early career teaching art in DC Public Schools. A cross-country move to Oakland prompted me to pursue dreams of being a freelance illustrator. I specialize in illustration and hand lettering for children’s literature, and murals that inspire engagement and imaginative thinking. I believe art has the capacity to transform and connect, so I make work that sparks new ways of seeing, reflecting, and interacting.

I grew up in rural North Carolina, in a house that doubled as a studio, near a tiny river. Most of my time was spent drawing and walking in the woods - and those are still my favorite activities! I now live in Durham, where I also love to cook and eat delicious vegan food, get lost in produce at the farmer’s market, and listen to all the true crime
