Born in Ealing, Middlesex in 1949, Yvonne painted from an early age encouraged by her father and grandmother. She moved to Dorset at the age of eleven and immersed herself in the local countryside which lies at the heart of her work. In the 1960s she attended Bournemouth College of Art and then dabbled in graphic design, photography and garment making before joining a small printing company. She remained in the printing world for ten years and combined it with raising a family and painting commissions in her spare time. Now she is happy to immerse herself in her painting and share her affinity for the countryside.
Her work can be found in many private collections.
