Artist Jazmine Saunders. 1986. (Fine Art with Sculpture B.A Hons. 2019)

After years of exploring and gaining the skills in different career fields such as retail, working
as a domiciliary Carer, end of life care, to working with children in SEN education as a
teaching assistant, it has given me a unique prospective on what life can mean to
different people.

A versatile artist specialising in a mixed ranged of media I have been a practising artist for over 20 years and have had 5 years of academic study in fine art, I work on commission to create bespoke paintings with a personal meaning for the
individual as well as making art with symbolic meaning based around the theme of intertwining humans with nature.

As humans we have lost the ability to connect naturally to the spiritual sense of self, instead connecting and communicating through a series of unnatural man-made forces. A female painter and sculptor my paintings are created through a process-led approach and makes references to feminism and empowerment, I also practice body casting and metal welding and how it can be used as a tool to create different tree like textures. Through mindful practices I have found that even through the hardest of emotional situations, mediation and self-care is hugely important to aid in creating and leading a quality of life.

We plug in to charge our phones, laptops, tablets, smart watches, the list goes on: Forgetting to recharge
ourselves! Through meditation and mindfulness, we can ground ourselves in reconnecting spiritually to each other and nature.
