Jasmine said of her inspiration for her artwork:
“The Women Who Came Before Me’ is a tribute to the women who paved the way for me to become the person I am today. I wanted this body of work to be a ‘thank you’ to my mother and grandmother who have granted me with every opportunity they could. I wanted to encapsulate in my drawings the power and strength they behold, in addition to their kind and nurturing manner. I created these portraits in a way that clearly depicts three generations and the connection we all share. Through my body of work, I set out to effectively showcase the impacts that they both have had on my life and development.”
IEU Vice President, Anthony Haskell, presented the award to Jasmine on the awards night.
Also present at the ceremony were Jasmine’s mother and grandmother (pictured at top of page).
The IEU supports this annual award to reward young artists from non-government schools for their creative endeavour.
