Bio

Jasmine completed her BLA at The University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2016 while enrolled in a 6 year accelerated medical program.  After being diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos during college, she began her healing journey through art, which included spending time at Artists First Studio, where she now works as arts facilitator. Her paintings have been shown across the St. Louis and Kansas City regions, including several solo shows, a national print feature, and a mural at UMKC. In addition, Jasmine has been featured by Ladue News, Gesso Magazine, KDHX, the St. Louis Post Dispatch and is currently represented by Artisans in the Loop and on display at The Angad Arts Hotel. 


Aside from her own art, she writes, teaches and works in all areas where creativity and wellness overlap. Jasmine is a trained wellness coach from Coach Training EDU and a teaching artist focused on the intersection of art and healing. Most recently she’s established the coaching practice, Chaos2order Coaching. Her one-on-one coaching and group workshops emphasize creativity and wellness, sharing the power of imagination and self-expression as they relate to empowerment, freedom and human potential. Jasmine currently serves as co-program director for the St. Louis chapter of the International Coach Federation and is in the process of developing a new coaching workbook with a focus on tools for aligning passion with purpose. In her free time she enjoys reading, spending time in nature, creating colorful objects, researching strange things, and meeting new people.
