Jasmine is one of the artists whose work is featured in the Black Rainbow exhibition at Boomalli Gallery this month.
Jas is fairly new to the arts scene, having started just over a year ago when she finally decided to “stop talking about it and start doing it.” Her work incorporates digital art and painting, and she says she feels proud to be part of an exhibition that is all about celebrating diversity and flying the rainbow flag for Mardi Gras 2014.
“Showing my artwork in this exhibition reflects the different sides of my life and showcases what’s great about being gay, Aboriginal and an artist,” she says. Jas describes herself as high energy and has been part of the Mardi Gras parade for the last five years.
The panel says:
She’s one of a kind, and her work is like nothing I’ve ever seen.
What a beautiful soul and obviously very motivated and dedicated.
She is so talented, and looks like she’d be acrobatically gifted and really good at chess.

We really admire any artist or person who puts their work on show and represents their people.
It takes courage.
