Jasmine Honour Mercer
Jasmine is a painter who discovers the unique spirit of her subject through energetic,
exploratory drawing and gained her passion for personalities while drawing characters
on the London Underground. Her love of narrative and movement has led her to find
great inspiration from fellow expressive painter, Caravaggio, and in the culturally
imaginative paintings of Chagall.
Jasmine was delighted to be short-listed for the Cork Street Open painting
competition and to be selected for the AOI (Association of Illustrators) annual
publication featuring the best of British illustration. She has successfully exhibited at
Windsor and Reading Art Fairs and The Contemporary Art & Design Fair in
Islington, London and currently has her portrait Joy on exhibition at Worthing
Museum & Art Gallery until Jan 2022 as selected by the WTAM Open21 curators.
An eternal love of nature can often be glimpsed in her selection of subjects and the empathy with which she paints them.
Jasmine takes great pleasure in painting portraits to commission alongside her gallery
paintings and is currently being commissioned to paint portraits of sitters and their pets.
