I first found Yasmine, or rather, she found me, via Instagram last year when she was kind enough to like some of my modelling photos. I always check out the profiles of people who like my stuff on Instagram and as soon as I saw Yasmine Petty, I had this lovely feeling go through me that I get whenever I see someone who has that something special. I knew right away, I had to draw her!
I visited her website and found out she was transgender, I felt an even stronger connection to her. She’s now a model / actress who is free, strutting her stuff for the world to see! Not only incredibly beautiful, but such a nice, kind and honest person too! She’s always posting inspiring quotes too, Yasmine’s a massive inspiration, so much so, she’s one of my inspirational models.
“Be Weird. Be random. Be who you are. Because you never know who would love the person you hide.“

“Who are you?
Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?
I have. I am fucking crazy.
But I am free.” – Lana Del Rey
“As an aquatic animal, the otter is a symbol of life. Why? Because the prime symbolic meaning of water deals with the divine feminine, which is a major life-giving energy. Water (and otters) are symbolic of creativity, fluidity and transitions.”
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
