Artist Yasmin Irani graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (honours) from the College of Art in New Delhi.  She has painted across several continents over the years and in several media (acrylics, oils, pastels, inks and watercolours) with a style that is impressionist.   Her other passions are traveling, interior decorating, gardening, photography and hiking in the great Canadian outdoors.
