Jamilla Okubo (b. 1993, North Carolina, USA) is a mixed-media artist. Washington, D.C. raised, Okubo earned her BFA in Integrated Design at Parsons School of Design. Her work has a consistent theme of exploring the intricacy of belonging to an American, Kenyan, and Trinidadian identity and aims to use her interdisciplinary concentration as a medium to address topics within her culture. Rotating between collage, painting, fashion design, and printmaking her work is heavily inspired by the art of storytelling through textiles and fashion.

Her work has been exhibited at Milk Gallery, Calabar Gallery,  Weeksville Heritage Center, and the Dray Walk Gallery.
