Jazmine Franklin

End the year with a bang, start the next one even bigger.

One of Coupeville’s best and brightest, the uber-talented Jazmine Franklin, continues to kill it in the art world and you could be helping to support her fast-rising career.

When she’s not crafting eye-popping paintings, the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Famer can be found putting her designs to work on a wide variety of clothes, as well as mugs, masks, keychains, and more.

Franklin recently debuted three new designs with her “Heart and Head Collection,” devoted to highlighting positive mental health.

During her days at CHS, Jazmine showcased a variety of talents, from being a student leader to teaming up with McKenzie Bailey to form an award-winning tennis doubles duo.

A truly lovely human being, she is proof positive that you can come from a small town, and yet be a big success through hard work, talent, and being a genuinely kind, caring person.

As 2020 transforms into 2021, maybe take a few moments to bask in her awesomeness and give something back.

Jazmine Franklin

It’s a win for everyone.

With the holiday season bearing down fast, now is the perfect time to pick up gifts for people in your life.

Thanks to the hard work and talents of a former Wolf supernova, you can obtain unique mementos, while supporting the work of one of Coupeville’s best and brightest.

During her time at CHS, Jazmine Franklin was a student leader, formed a potent doubles duo on the tennis court with McKenzie Bailey, and was one of the loudest ‘n proudest cheerleaders ever to wear the red and black.

Franklin was later inducted into the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Fame, a true legend among legends.

In her post-high school days, the former Wolf has expanded her art empire as she continues to produce high-quality work.

So, take my advice, and pop over to her site to see for yourself.

The gift you buy today could be a double gift – if you buy it from the right source.

Her latest masterpiece.

Does your kid draw?

Maybe they paint, or take photos, or write stories, or craft poems, or do just about anything creative.

If so, this is the time to let the world see what they can do, and also give me stuff to publish during our current sports slowdown.

Doesn’t matter if they attend school in Coupeville, Oak Harbor, or on the South end of the Island.

It’s open to everyone on Whidbey.

Contact me on Facebook or email me at davidsvien@hotmail.com, and let’s get your offspring their moment in the spotlight.

It captures Coupeville High School freshman and talented artist Emma Garcia creating a swirling explosion of color, as recorded by mom Aaron Wiley.

But, enough with my talking. Watch for yourself and be impressed.
