Jasika Nicole (nee Jasika Nicole Pruitt) - originally from Birmingham, AL - attended Catawba College, a private college in North Carolina, majoring in theater, voice and dance, before moving to New York City to pursue her career in acting. She starred opposite Bronson Pinchot in the title role of the world premiere of the musical “Chasing Nicolette,” and has appeared in several stage productions, most notably in the off-Broadway ‘60s musical “Café A Go Go” and the world premiere of “Believe In Me…A Bigfoot Musical” at the 2004 NYC Fringe Festival.

Nicole made her feature film debut in the ballroom-dancing movie “Take the Lead” with Antonio Banderas, and soon after landed an appearance on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.” She was also cast as the villain in the highly praised sitcom pilot “Mastersons of Manhattan” written by Gary Janetti, starring Natasha Richardson and Molly Shannon and directed by James Burrows. She also had a recurring role on FOX’s “The Return of Jezebel James” with Parker Posey and Lauren Ambrose.

It was on the sets of film and stage productions that Nicole began drawing and then displaying her work online. Her website has since acquired an enthusiastic fan base. Her illustrations have been commissioned and sold worldwide, and she is currently completing work with a major shopping network on a line of eco-friendly tote bags adorned with her drawings. In addition to freelance illustration, Nicole writes and draws an autobiographical comic entitled “High Yella Magic,” which is being developed into a graphic novel.
