Yasmin French exhibition

Yasmin French
Contemporary British Artist

I am a contemporary British artist specialising in acrylic paintings of landscapes, scenes and animals inspired by travel. In 2022, I began using alcohol inks to create abstracts centred on the universe with colour schemes inspired by our galaxies and beyond. I explore colour to create vibrant, energetic artwork. Colour, light and the human condition are centric to my pieces.

A Few Words

Yasmin, I’ve been shopping on art finder for some time and your painting is by far my favourite. It takes pride of place in the entrance hall of the house and something I look at every day.
Thank you

Tom Collins

I just love my new original ‘Candy Floss’ painting from Yasmin. There is something so calming and serene about this little piece and I particularly love the way the gold shimmers and those small flecks of pink remind me of the recent winter sunsets. 
If you are looking for a bespoke piece with a personal touch, I cannot recommend Yasmin enough.

A few things you might like to know

Here are a few questions I’m asked a lot, and if you have more, then feel free to get in touch – don’t be shy!


Yes, I am related to Soraya French – she is my mum! I’m so proud of everything she has achieved. She has taught me a lot and supported me. You’ll find me at Project Workshops quite regularly in the studio, and I participate in the open studios. 


I mostly work from my home studio, which is a box room. It’s just me, so you’re in direct contact with the artist! I pack and arrange the shipping for all of the originals myself.

 Alcohol inks are dye-based dissolved in alcohol. They are unique in that you do not work with water – they are manipulated and diluted using alcohol (Ethanol).  For maximum play time, it’s best to use nonporous surfaces for the ink to move and manipulate. It’s great fun.


The paintings are treated with UV protection, but like all paintings, they shouldn’t be put in direct sunlight. Indirect sunlight is absolutely fine and will show off the metallic sheen – but direct sunlight does bleach pigment. 


I do produce greeting cards, some are created using Fotospeed card stock, and others are printed via Moo. The bookmarks are handmade offcuts. At the moment, cards are only available at shows – but if you really, really want some, feel free to message me and I’ll see what I can do!


I get nervous buying paintings online too, so I understand. I’m proud to say I have a 0% return rate, but if you decide to change your mind, all you would need to do is cover the postage to return the painting and I will refund you.
