Artist Statement:

We live in troubling and promising times, where concurrent to much global suffering is a blooming quest for unity and love, and where the human spirit craves authentic interconnections to one another, to beauty and tenderness, to justice and peace, and to sustainable hopes for humanity.

peace-be-still-yasmin-sayyedArt is a language of the heart; it can fuse intellect and sacredness in a single brush stroke, and in a single intention of standing in union with nature and cosmic rhythms. As an artist I feel compelled by an inner calling of spirit and character to examine my realities with a heart set to amplify what heals the struggles and delights of the soul.

My paintings speak to the union of like and unalike elements dancing in an awakened, unblinking vision of unity, and speaking a tongue full of anticipations of connecting and interrelating the many veils of knowledge and ways of being with one another in harmony. I paint with brushes dipped in an elegance and splendour of that language.
