The Gold Current by Yasmin

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 my heritage. 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.
