Meet gorgeous Yumna Sadan. We’ve worked together at two agencies over a period of about five years, I think. Ya, sounds about right. I know her as an incredibly talented Art Director / Designer in this crazy advertising business. Award-winning, in fact.
(Shhh, don’t tell anyone but she and fellow copywriter Shameema Davids were two of my (many) favourites in the studio.)
Anyhoo, I also knew that she dabbled occasionally with paint and canvasses between shopping trips to Cavendish, gorging on popcorn & coke at Cinema Nouveau, hanging with local film director Oliver Hermanus – she calls him Ollie – and just being fab. What I was not aware of, is just how uber-talented she really is.
So after a crazy day
in the salt mines at the agency, Yumna finds time to paint, photograph the process and then blog about her work. Her concept is also wow but I won’t tell you how she decides on her subject matter. You need to see this for yourself.
Her work is for sale – affordable beyond words – and she accepts commissions. All contact details are on her beautiful blog, PaintByQuotes. Go and check it out.
Here’s to supporting local artists.
love & light
