- Jasmine Desrochers, Author & Illustrator -
Since her early years, Jasmine Desrochers has been fascinated by children’s illustrations. When she was just a child she would draw for hours fairies, princesses, dragons, knights, extraterrestrial monsters, animals, etc. She loved and still does to immerse herself in fantastical worlds and surround herself with strange and funny creatures right out of her imagination. Her childish artistic style combined with her vivid imagination results in beautiful and colorful illustrations.
She uses traditional (mostly watercolor) and non-traditional mediums to create her illustrations, using what best connects with the project. She has recently explored various technics and materials to create illustrations that will best serve the mood of the story she's working on.
Jasmine is currently living in the province of Quebec, Canada.
My work explores nature and whimsical world as if they were seen through a child’s eyes. The interaction between the abstract and the representation creates a soft balance. The color palette chosen as well as the kind mediums used reflect the moods and emotions.
