The Long Version

The Early Years

Jamie Carney is an artist both in the traditional and digital field. Born into a creative family of artist’s and encouraged to draw since a very young age, he has a natural talent for originality and precision that can be seen in his traditional artwork. Around the age of 10 Jamie was given a Commodore 64 computer. This was his introduction to simple pixels, programming, and writing simple games.


While living in Hawaii in the early 90’s Jamie completed a 3D animation internship at Big Kahuna Productions on Maui and went on to work for the company. Besides working on commercial 3D projects, he also assisted with remote 3D rendering tests on the Maui High Performance Computing Center and blue screen video compositing for interactive CD-Rom's. This was also the beginning of the internet and during this time Jamie made his first graphic based website.

Silicon Valley

In the mid 90's Jamie moved to Santa Cruz, California, where he worked for various award-winning Silicon Valley web and design firms. He honed his skills in both animation and web development. There was also a brief project sculpting life-size Dr Suess characters for Universal Studios, but that story is for another day. Continuing to work in 3D and digital meida he also began diving heavily into website design, HTML , javascript and later Flash. He also worked on early avatar based chatrooms, live video streaming and VR. Soon Flash was to become became a major content delivery platform. Flash was perfect for combining 3D, graphics, programming, and sound editing, all skills Jamie possessed, to deliver fully interactive websites and presentations.

Santa Cruz

Then the dot com crash happened and as companies started streamlining Jamie decided to start freelancing. Building up a client base from scratch, it forced him to combine his traditional art skills with his digital knowledge and offer an even wider range of services. This including custom artwork, logos, business cards, posters, t-shirts, letterheads, etc. He stayed on top of mobile trends as cell phones took over and mastered Wordpress as it emerged as a major website platform. And as Flash projects faded out due to the iPhone no longer supporting it, Jamie started taking on more animation and motion effects work.


6 years ago Jamie decide to move back to his childhood home of Kauai where his family still resides. He continues to take on projects of all types, building websites up to the latest standards and advancing his knowledge of all things internet and design related. Over the course of freelancing for 20 years Jamie developed a strong work ethic and at this point has a steady flow of both repeat customers and new projects.
