Meet the Team

Julie McFarland - JMGA President

Julia McFarland, President

Originally a journalism student, Julie switched directions and earned an AAS degree in Advertising Design at St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley. After working in the industry for several years, Julie founded JM Graphic Arts, Inc. so she could work at home while raising her two small children. Julie’s kids are grown and gone, but the business remains and is thriving. As the face of JMGA, Julie loves meeting new people and is a relational thinker. She finds the most joy in collaborating with her team to create something of greater value than she could ever accomplish by herself. In her spare time you will find her walking, crocheting, reading a good mystery, or traveling with her husband.

Ocie joined the JM Graphic Arts Team in 2001 and has proven to be an asset regarding the logic side of our design team. With his degree in Corporate Publications and his background in digital and print production, Ocie has helped define many aspects of our automated catalog and design services. His previous experience as Publications Coordinator for First Baptist Church Maryville, Illinois and his history with digital printing and workflow provides a wealth of knowledge for all our various clients.
