In 2009 he was a visting lecturer at the University of Florida. That same year, a small Jamison work was entered into the permanent collection of MoMA, New York's Museum of Modern Art, as part of the international unbound project titled 'A Book About Death'.
In 2010, Jamison was commissioned by Native Land & Grosvenor to build sugar cube scale models of Tate Modern and NEO Bankside for the London Festival of Architecture. His carved sugar cube sculptures were later sold at Sotheby's (Bond Street, London) in an exhibition of contemporary art curated by Janice Blackburn. 2012 will see a carved sugar sculpture of Number 10 exhibited inside 10 Downing Street, London. Jamison has received six awards from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and is represented in Ireland by Hillsboro Fine Art, Dublin.
