Kia ora, I'm Jasmine, I'm a printmaker and jewellery maker and currently work as a Graphic Design for the Kaipara District Council. I am Ngati Tuwharetoa, Ngati Rangi, Te Ati Awa, Irish and British descent.
I graduated with a Bachelor in Applied Arts - Visual from NorthTec Whangarei in 2006. I spent 7 years working in the graphic design industry until I started managing an open-acess print studio in 2013 and my love for print flourished. Print, paper and design have always been a love of mine and Te Kowhai Print Trust brought that all together for me. Printmaking has become my passion. The techniques I use are predominantly Stone Lithograph and Serigraph, however I enjoy all printmaking techniques. Recently I've been experimenting with using print in my jewellery design and this is definitely something I want to develop further.
