Robina Yasmin

A local painter who is well known for her uplifting, figurative paintings of animals, swimmers and related subjects

Widely associated with paintings of giraffes and swimmers, Robina is known for her sensitivity of observations and technique. Each of her paintings takes considerable time and is the outcome of high concentration that focuses on form, colour and especially light. After studying at the Glasgow School of Art, Robina established herself in a south London studio where she paints images taken during days out to zoos and whilst on holiday.

Her paintings come from times in her life when she is at her happiest. The sense of freedom that comes from being on holiday plays an important part in her work. Her intention is to pass on this feeling to the viewer.
