About

Jasmine Kamante is a classically trained artist who focuses on figurative narratives. Naturally drawn to sketching and painting from an early age, her intense desire to learn led her to study classical and contemporary drawing and painting techniques in ateliers in Florence and Paris. Her extensive studies of the human figure help her to capture and reveal expressions and body language in an honest and accurate way to create a visual story.

Jasmine’s work is held in the James Wallace Arts Trust, New Zealand, and in private collections internationally.
