Yvonne has lived a colourful and textured life and this is reflected in her paintings. Through her work she embraces poetry of structure. She was brought up on a farm and spent a large portion of her childhood in the Emerald Isle, her mother’s homeland. She was greatly influenced by the simplicity and beauty that was woven into the land there, 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. One of her most formative journeys was spent with a horse-drawn community in England, discovering ancient, sacred and forgotten parts of our land. 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. Recently she has relocated to the south west and now works full time as a professional artist.
