Jasmine Best is a Carolina based mixed media artist and designer who works with collage, digital painting, textile design, and animation.
"Working from my individual past articulates both a better understanding of my own background as a Black Carolinian woman as well as creates a platform where others can find relatable connections from my work in their lives. I take the racial, southern, and domestic upbringing I, and past generations of woman in my family have had, and place it in a new context. I am creating a platform for discussion for black femininity in predominantly white spaces as well as creating a
vehicle where my audience can make connections of representation, or lack there of, in their own youth and how that effected them."
