The Artist - Jazmin Velasco-Moore
Jazmin is from Guadalajara, Mexico where she studied graphic design and illustration. Subsequently she studied oil painting and printmaking in Mexico City and years later moved to London where she studied multimedia and where she established her work as an artist, printmaker, ceramicist and continues to illustrate books. She is a member of the Society of Wood Engravers and the Crafts Council and her Prints and Ceramics are in Galleries around the UK. Currently Jazmin lives in the South of England. For her ceramics she looks for inspiration in the vast territory of Mexico where since pre columbian times the tradition of ceramic is rich and powerful, that combined with her love for English culture and the Georgian period particularly, thus creating a work that looks vaguely English and definitely Mexican.
