Hi I'm Jasmin! I create realistic portraits of random people and sometimes real people. I often use acrylic paint but I recently started experimenting with oil paints and I really enjoy it. I'm also working on painting landscapes but my favorite is realistic portraits; that's my art style! I am a proud black young lady who loves art and wants to share my art with the world, and give different perspectives on how I view things.

What does being a Black girl who paints mean to you?

A black girl who paints is an amazing creative and artistic person. She expresses herself through her art and leaves a thoughtful message behind. She encourages others like herself to express themselves and to continue to create and share. I am a black girl who paints!
