Yvonne has lived a colourful and textured life and this is reflected in her paintings. Brought up on a farm, she was greatly influenced by the simplicity and beauty that was woven into the land, and shaped by the gentle passion that ran through the people and culture. Surrounded by music and magic she developed a love of life early on.
Inspired by the world and all it contained, Yvonne travelled widely in her twenties with a thirst for exploration and discovery. She spent time living and working in the Middle East, Australia, Africa and Europe.
Yvonne's spirit of curiosity and deep enquiry led her to pursue a degree in philosophy and literature at Brighton University. Her creative life continued with the birth of her daughter Poppy and formal fine art training in Sussex, and she now works full time as a professional artist in South Devon.
