Fairy Tales Gone Awry

There is something interesting about these oil paintings I can not explain. Every element in the paintings offers a message of a story to be told, from the facial expression, to the color choices, and the environment. According to Jasmine Worth, they are "fairy tales gone awry – swirling seamlessly between sweet and surreal, inevitable dipping into the valley of the morbid."

Jasmine stated to Monzuki, she has always had the passion for art, drawing from cartoons at a very young age. She graduated from the Laguna College of Art and Design. The medium in these recent work is oil on gessoed board. Check her website for available artwork.
