Jasmine Klapia is a multicultural young woman. At the age of five she felt a call to artistry in her life, but she ignored the feeling because during those early years she had no real understanding of how to appreciate or develop her talents. Some thirty years later she began to realize that this awareness was not just an urge to create a beautiful piece of art to display on a wall--it involved much more than that. It was a driving force that has moved her to explore the more involved areas of various cultures, spirituality, and human nature.
