She graduated from Tri-Cities High School with Visual Arts as her degree. She has entered numerous art competitions and exhibitions and has won a few. In 2009, she won 1st place in drawing where she was a recipient to attend the nationals from NAACP ACT-SO competition for African American artists in New York City. In that same year, she started volunteering for ONYXCON, which is an anime convention where African American artists create comic books, graphic novels, films, and much more. She met an artist named Turtel Onli and he offered her to create characters for his book called "Sustah Girl". It is a workout book about how disabled athlete women can stay fit and healthy by doing sports or other active activities. It also gives a message that people with disabilities can do just about anything. A few years later she became an art vendor and started displaying and selling artwork of her own, including her character "Sustah Girl".

She has a special interest in composing colors and shading on SAI. She is an experienced art teacher of 4 years at Southwest Art Center. Currently, Jasmine has been working on character illustrations to make short stories and wants to make something out of that such as comic books, storyboards, and graphic novels in the near future. In addition to working on her art, she loves to give back to the community.
