Yasmin French

My name is Yasmin and I enjoy painting, drawing, designing and climbing. I’m much older than I look, but I’m younger than I feel. I’m a bookworm and computer geek in my spare time. Sometimes I can be found sparring at my local gym or with my local aerial silks coach. I like learning new things! Life is too short to sit down.

By day I work in the photography industry, in sales and marketing, supplying post-production digital editing services B2B. I originally trained in Television Production, studying at Bournemouth University. I currently live in Hampshire.

I didn’t study art; most of what I know is self-taught or instructed by my mother, a successful well-known artist. There is a lot to be said for surrounding yourself with inspiration material – I certainly grew up with a lot. I mainly paint in acrylics, with various brands – Golden, Liquitex, Cryla, Windsor & Newton, and others. I am currently open to commissions – I paint lots of animals and scenes, but not portraits – yet!
