About Yasmeen Amina Olya
Having grown up in a Waldorf school, I was always surrounded by beautiful paintings. Shepherded by teachers forced to expose their artistic faculties as a means to teach, and often accompanied for years by the same teacher everyday illustrating beautifully each subject we learned.
I am a harpist and singer , I love to paint, I love to pray, I am very into peace and constancy and strength, I study Sufism, follow a Sufi master, pray five times a day, and try to pray a lot in the last third of the night, I practice fasting, it is my intention to be as an oasis of discretion humility, kindness, generosity as far as is my place to give and be of service to all people I meet, through my music and art as well.
I paint because I want to share beauty and gentleness in the world, I especially love children’s illustration and am a mother myself of three children. When I illustrate and write I try to convey the wonder and simplicity, the delight of childhood, imbuing each painting with warm gentle light and expression, hopefully an inspiration of the care of beautiful living.
I pray that when people see or hear or experience my work, the they be inspired to be kind and good to others, to live in harmony, to learn the knowledge of real harmony and fulfillment, and to feel inspired by the wonder and beauty and majesty manifesting in every moment all around us.
