About Loveleemine ✿

Hello friends! My name is Jasmine, I am the owner and the artist behind Loveleemine :)

My shop name, Loveleemine (Lŭv′lē/mīne), came up as sort of a play on words. Instead of correctly spelling the word "lovely", I substituted the "ly" with my last name "Lee" and took the "Mine" out of my first name, "Jasmine", putting it together as one word: Loveleemine. It also has the meaning of "something lovely belonging to me." My work has been often described as lovely, so I wanted to somehow incorporate this word into my shop name!

Growing up, I have always loved drawing. I probably started drawing ever since I discovered a crayon as a toddler. I enjoyed watching Disney princess films, and shoujo anime such as Sailor Moon + Wedding Peach. I also had an undying obsession for stickers, planners, and all things cute, soft and whimsical. Although I studied fine art + animation in college, I am currently working as an independent illustrator & designer, running my online shop from my home studio in sunny, southern California.☀️

I first opened my shop on Etsy in August of 2017, selling my illustrations and handmade journaling & planner stickers. It started out as a creative outlet (just a little fuel to keep my passion for drawing alive), but to my sweet surprise, it quickly took off into much more :)

My original character, CoCo, was created during a low season of my post-college life. A period where I was struggling as an artist, and felt lost when it came to my work/career. I began to express my feelings in my journal with doodles of CoCo. She was a joy to draw!

Along with CoCo, I created Cilla and Daisy (CoCo's best friends), and later Roy (CoCo's partner), Tater, Tot, and Cinnabun (CoCo's pets) as a sweet addition to the Loveleemine family:

And to this day, I want to give thanks to all of you who have been supporting my work and for all of your awesomeness. I am able to do what I love to do because of the encouragement that I receive from all of you, 
and for that I could not be more grateful.💖
