Jasmine's childhood and home state heavily influenced her career as an artist. "It is usually the things that are difficult to express in words that find themselves laid bare on the canvas in front of me".

Jasmine Mansbridge is a painter, published author, speaker and mother of five. Although she works from her purpose-built studio in Hamilton in Western Victoria, she is often on the road seeking out new creative opportunities.
As a young person Jasmine lived in Katherine in the Northern Territory for twelve years and had close contact with several Aboriginal artists during this time. Watching the way they painted as a part of day to day life, left a deep impression on her and influenced the way she works today. For Jasmine the process, ritual and labour of painting itself are of integral importance to the finished piece, as are the intentions and musings that are imbued in every brushstroke. Her subject matter combines architectural forms and geometric imaginings which are used as metaphors to tell stories around our shared human experience. The drawing in, meditive and contemplative value of the paintings are meant to be an antidote to our busy, technological and image rich daily lives.
In addition to eight solo shows - including shows in New York, Koskela and the Hamilton Regional Art Gallery - and numerous group exhibitions, Jasmine has also completed commissioned murals for the National Australia Bank, TAFE and Warrnambool City Council
A keen collaborator, Jasmine’s geometric inspired artworks can be found on ‘Royal Stacks’ food trucks in Australia, imaginative street art in Hong Kong and community murals closer to home.
Jasmine’s passion for sharing practical advice on balancing a creative business with motherhood inspired her to pen her first book, “There’s a Paintbrush in My Coffee.” Jasmine also regularly shares her experience living as a creative parent as a guest speaker and she’s been featured in numerous print and online publications including Mama Disrupt, Art Edit and The Interiors AddictJasmine’s work is represented in Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast.
