People's Gallery at Austin City Hall: March 6 – Dec 31, 2020
Happy to see you here!
Let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Yasmin and I'm a mixed media artist currently based in Austin, Texas. I draw inspiration from plants, dreams, imagination, textiles, travel, and the color blue. As you will see when you look around this site, my mixed media art is often deeply textured and layered with vintage ephemera, ink, acrylic, mark-making, graphite and gold leaf. My subject matter range from imaginative dreamscapes to hamsas to introspective female figures. I also love creating cyanotypes using local plants, flowers and paper silhouettes. These botanical vignettes are a deep shade of indigo and white.

Did You Know I Like to Dance?
I have performed in large festivals, theaters, and concert venues around the world with Thievery Corporation, Govinda and Sabaya Bellydance Collective.
I Also Design User Experiences.
In the corporate world, I have built an extensive career as a User Experience (UX) Designer & Manager designing enterprise-level software, websites, iPhone and iPad applications. I hold several software patents and, in general, can easily nerd out on the topic of design.
