Yaslani - 28/90 Featured Seller

Note from the goddess:
I love this sellers mixed media piece called "moonlight"
Its very Dali-esque. I also really love the piece entitled Little China Doll.

What her customers are saying!

I LOVE my new elephant. Great work. Thanks so much.
I will be back for more.***

***GORGEOUS GORGEOUS! Thank you thank you, I love them! and I'm sure my friends will love them too once I turn these gorgeous works of art into necklaces and bracelets for 'em for christmas! >:D***

Copied from the sellers etsy profile:
I was born and raised on the Jersey Shore and then moved to Los Angeles where I studied Fine Art -Painting at Otis Art Institute. Before long I found myself back in New Jersey where I detoured from art for a while and settled into a normal life fully stocked with a corporate job. Turns out normal isn’t for me. Making things is an addiction. A packrat by nature, I believe all items have a second life and I love using recycled items and supplies that are gentle to the environment.

My work consists of bamboo pendants and mixed media paintings. I use found objects, bamboo, ephemera, old paper, acrylic, goauche, pencils, pens, ink, glitter… and anything else within my grasp. I’m influenced by pop culture, color, music, animals, fashion, movies, magazines and too many artists to mention. There are no heavy messages in my work. I consider my art to be an aesthetic conversation. A lovely chat between friends sometimes relaying a story or an inside joke. The only judgement I make with my art is “am I feeling this or not.” The “not” pile gets recycled for another day.

Yaslani is the brainchild for all my creative outlets. There is so much more I plan to do. There are so many more beautiful conversations I plan to have and I’m still planning my escape from normal. Stay tuned.
