Collection: Jasmine Rutschmann
Growing up in Port Perry Ontario Rutschmann learned how to use various tools in her Dad's welding shop. Her artwork has been displayed at various and art shows and it is continuing to gain recognition within the community. Her love for art flourished when her love for sports had to be put on hold due to an injury. After breaking her collarbone, Rutschmann needed a way to pass the time as she always loved to be working on something. This is when she went out to her Dad's shop and picked up a plasma cutter and found her new passion. Everything happens for a reason and she is a strong believer that through the injury took her away from one passion it allowed her to find another.
Rutschmann is happier than she has ever been to be working and creating sculptures. Starting with 100% recycled materials she experimented and developed her artistic abilities. Carving out nature scenes and floral designs on found objects such as old shovelheads, wheelbarrows, metal umbrella tables, saws, and even oil tanks. Jasmine believes in helping the environment and most of her sculptures have been created by saving objects from going into a landfill. She transforms these common discarded metal pieces into art.
These re-purposed materials have served as very unique canvases to showcase her art. She has been featured on the Marilyn Denis show where she gave a business pitch to Kevin O’Leary about her art. Kevin O’Leary gave the advice to go international with her work, Rutschmann recently had her first solo art show in New York.
