A Los Angeles native, Jasmine majored in fine arts at the University of California, Santa Cruz. During her time there she was a School Programs Intern at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History. She also spent her senior year working as a teacher’s assistant at UCSC’s Early Education Services. It was through these experiences that she discovered her passion for engaging children through the arts. Jasmine has been working with families at PLAY since 2014 (with a short hiatus to finish her last semester at UCSC). In her own artistic pursuits, she illustrates with watercolors, practices oil painting, graphite drawing, and documentary photography. When not teaching or creating art, she enjoys collecting comic books, thrift shopping, and traveling.
