Jamie Oliveira

Jamie Oliveira is a 23 year old poet, artist, and femme healing activist from the San Francisco Bay Area. She is the author of the photo book (more than) dust, as well as in passing, a self-published collection of art and poetry. Her work has been featured on the Huffington Post, BUST Magazine, Hello Giggles, and more, as well as in art spaces and film festivals around the world.

She received her B.A. in documentary film production from San Francisco State University, which provided a strong foundation of honesty and ethics in her approach to art and storytelling. Since she began her travels, she has read her poetry and painted murals of her work throughout Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Himachal Pradesh, India. Now, she is nurturing plants, being nurtured by forests, and sharing her work on the road in the U.S.
