Second Place Studio was created by Jamie Kepko in the summer of 2019 as a way to overcome the anxiety of creating something “perfect”. Part diary-esque blog, part portfolio, part shrine to her dog, Second Place Studio strives to be a space of constant improvement. A place where you don’t have to be the best at something, as long as you’re doing the damn thing.
Jamie Kepko earned her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in the spring of 2016. After working in Brooklyn, NY for 2 years, she returned to Kansas City where she spends the majority of her time thinking of ways to make the best life possible for her dog, Georgia.
