Recently she has expanded her painting practice in producing multiple large scale public murals in the Adelaide CBD and surrounds including Wonderwalls and SANAA festival murals.
Jasmine's characteristic painting practice is inclusive of traditional painting, installation and mural painting. Her work is driven by an interest in relationships between people, their belongings and home environments with focus on ideas concerning how objects and places are treasured, valued, possessed, or used as forms of self-adornment and identification. She combines personal experiences, relationships with others and literature to construct narrative paintings set in both domestic and imagined spaces.'
