Jasmine Worth's latest collection is titled Together Forever. In this series she's focused on the obvious (and sometimes not so obvious) interconnectedness of people; the ways our associations shape our lives, whether beneficial or parasitic, enriching and fulfilling or codependent and detrimental. In many ways we are the sum of those we encounter. Sometimes these encounters lead to lifelong bonds, and sometimes the briefest connection can have surprisingly lasting effects. It is these interconnected relationships and intertwining of lives that pair the focus in Together Forever –works exploring the ways in which others shape who we are.

Jasmine Worth crafts scenes from fairytales gone awry—swirling seamlessly between the sweet and surreal, inevitably dipping into the valley of the morbid. She studied formally at Watts Atelier as well as Studio 2nd Street in Encinitas, CA, and earned her BFA from the Laguna College of Art and Design. While she possesses the credentials, the product of her toils clearly pours from the cobwebbed corners of her mind, not the classroom. Her paintings—a cabaret of vibrant hues—are a blend of soft textures and colorful characters, juxtaposed against gloomy themes. Created in her home of San Diego, Jasmine combines dark influences and subtle-yet-serious undertones with raw artistic talent and a rarely seen creativity. Her work exudes a strong bearing of individuality, manifested through characters that speak almost vocally and give a new element of depth to an otherwise two dimensional medium. Each scene tells a story and every story is as diverse in emotion as it is in appearance
