Yvonne completed her Bachelor of Arts at Edith Cowan University in painting and printmaking. This popular Perth artist is well known for her brightly coloured fantastical paintings and now brings a new direction with her intricate patterning in this new series of works. Yvonne has exhibited in the Salon des Refuses and was a finalist in the national works on paper award in Mornington Peninsular, as well as People’s Choice award in the Albany Art prize 2018.
For this series she says
“My most recent body of work looks at ornamentation and investigates the close relationship that the natural world and ornamentation have, with an emphasis on pattern and form, using Western Australia's native flora endemic to my local environment as a starting point. I work primarily within the framework of painting and ceramics, and I’ve always found my influences within the natural world and memory.”
