Welcome to Mamamia’s art endeavour, the Voulez-Vous Project. Every week we celebrate emerging artists, designers, illustrators, creators and women who knit using their vaginas. (Kidding. Maybe.)
Our aim: to help the internet become a slightly more beautiful, captivating, or thought-provoking place by making art accessible. To find out more about the Voulez-Vous project, click here. Click here to see all the previous Voulez-Vous posts.

Jasmin, who sketches under the name Cheval Nine, is one of these artists. Her unique sketches, mostly of life-like horses with intricate high fashion detailing, draw inspiration from two main elements: fashion and the beauty of horses.

“As a child I collected horse figurines instead of barbies. I owned horses and loved everything about them. They’re such majestic animals. Fashion is about conveying a story, an attitude, a feeling and that’s what I love to capture in a unique way using horses in my illustrations,” Jasmin told Mamamia.
The artist has been interested in sketching and painting since she can remember, and excelled at art throughout her schooling years. In recent years, she has decided to turn her passion into her career and begin her own business.
