Irish-born, Bristol-based Yasmeen Ismail is an award-winning author, illustrator and animator. Yasmeen studied at art school in Dublin and after graduating moved to London where she worked on many different projects in advertising, short films and children’s publishing. 

After running a successful animation production company, Yasmeen changed her focus to writing and illustrating picture books. As a result of her animation background, her illustrations are bright, fluid and full of energy and movement. Yasmeen loves to work with watercolours, inks, crayons, pastels, pencils and paints and is moving to all sorts of other mediums.

She now lives in Bristol with her husband, their son and Betty the cat.
