Aimee (Bruckner) Stevland, 2021

Aimee (Bruckner) Stevland is an experienced creative professional based in the San Francisco Bay area. She has spent the majority of her career in the entertainment industry leading creative teams in music artist merchandising, product development, and video game partnership marketing. She has contributed to the success of major companies like Electronic Arts, and legendary music acts including Mariah CareyUsherThe Beatles, and The Doors.

Challenging Limitations
Aimee’s professional art career nearly came to a halt years ago, after an incurable, neuromuscular disorder called focal dystonia left her unable to use her dominant hand. After years of painful struggle, Aimee would adapt and overcome her physical limitations by retraining her body, her brain, and her artistic process, eventually transitioning to digital art.

Music has been a powerful healing force, and Aimee especially enjoys creating portraits of music icons. She holds the unique distinction of creating the largest tribute of original Janet Jackson illustrations, with an active fanbase spanning over 25 years.

How can I help you?
In between all those projects, she helps authors, entrepreneurs, and others establish their visual presence in the marketplace. Large or small, she strives to give each project her all.

Specializing in custom logo creation, brand development, and visual communication, Aimee is passionate about showcasing one’s unique message so that the rest of the world can understand and appreciate it.
