Jasmine Buller

Jasmine Lillian Buller: "My story starts very close to many artists. I have been an artist since I was 12 years old. I started out with drawing with graphite and colored pencils. As a teenager I was always hard on myself. I never thought that I could create the visions I saw in my head. My perfectionism got the best of me and often times I gave up on my drawings. On top of my own self criticism, growing up I was told that being an artist professionally was not a viable career choice.

Fast forward to 2017. I was working for my family’s accounting business for a good 6 years. The job was literally draining me and I felt depressed. I meditated quite a bit on what I really wanted to do in this world. What is going to make my time on this planet worthwhile. I was drawn back to my art. I am so glad that I dedicated my time to honing my skill to get where I am today. I used every inch of free time I had to practice. Painting is what really saved me and my inner critic. Paint can have a mind of its own sometimes and allows me to be more free with my creating. I became comfortable with making mistakes to grow from them. Since then, I've started instructing acrylic painting.

I always wanted to give back through teaching. I was also blessed by becoming a member of The Passageway Gallery. I am now a full time artist and instructor. I am still in the beginning stages of my journey. Every year I sell more and more of my artwork and gain more commissions. I can’t wait to see what the future holds."

Creating Galaxies

What better way to learn vibrancy than with galaxies! I wanted to stick to the “fun”shop theme and paint something that allows for playfulness and happy accidents. During this fun shop we will go through layering with acrylics. I will go over a few different brush techniques to create nebulas and galaxy clusters. Be prepared to get messy.
