Yvonne has been a lifelong artist and art lover. With a background in art education and art therapy, she returned to painting in 2013, when she retired from her work as a therapist.
Influenced by the great abstract expressionists, her paintings are loose and free. As an expat American, she is deeply inspired by living between the ancient, beautiful Scottish town of St Andrews, and the village of Cushendall, on the stunning Antrim coast of Northern Ireland, near where she has built a second studio. The countryside, seaside and garden are her happy places. She has lived in the UK since 2005.
Yvonne's focus is on filling her paintings with a joyful energy, which can be felt by the viewer. Owners of her work often comment on the peace and happiness they feel when they view her work. Her wish is to share this joy with you!
Along with original paintings, some images are available as prints, cards and scarves. See each category (list on the left of each page) for a display of the items currently available in that category.
Demand for scarves has been especially great. You will find a beautiful selection of pure silk scarves in the shop.
