About me
My name is Jahkori Dopwell Hall, and I welcome you to my personal website. Ever since childhood, I have always been a creative. I am a recent graduate of the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. I received a Bachelors Degree of Fine Arts in Illustration. Upon graduating from the High School of Art and Design in New York City, I came to Ringling to enhance my art skills and help me further my future career as a children's book illustrator and teaching artist.

Being a young African American man, my goal is to make a statement with my art and bring about positive change in the community. Although I am capable of working in many different art mediums, my best work is done traditionally in gouache. My ideas come from a combination of my imagination and things that I’ve experienced in life. Seeing how the world changes every day, I am always inspired to create new, unique art. Art in itself is amazing, but it is the beauty that is caught in the artwork that makes it worthwhile!
