”Whoever wants to know something about me- as an artist, the only notable thing- they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognize what I am and what I want“ – Gustav Klimt
Born in Texas, raised in California
and now living in the United Kingdom as a self taught artist; J M Asker specialises in portraiture painting and has had a long held obsession with the workings of humanity and how we as humans process emotions.
Life is about stories. The stories we are told, the stories we read and the stories we tell other people. She captures the stories that shape her life in intimate and eclectic works giving the viewer a rare glimpse into the artists inner circle and mind. Art isn’t about capturing beautifully exquisite things, it’s about who we are, what happened to us and the people we became because of it. For J M Asker creating art is an obligation and because of that, she creates art that is a highly personal reflection of herself.
