Mother by Jasmine Worth
"I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. My mother still has a drawing I did of Fred Flintstone when I was 3 years old. I've always been influenced by cartoons and books, I am an avid consumer of both." Jasmine says that she loves both watercolors and oils. "The two are so different. I usually work in oils for my professional work, but I still love to use watercolors whenever I get the chance!"

Wishbone by Jasmine Worth
In her spare time, Jasmine is an avid reader and collector of dead things (don't worry, she doesn't kill them herself). "I like to read. A lot. I own a freakish amount of books that are piled (literally) floor to ceiling."
