Barbara Yon, a native of Anderson, SC now resides in Ridge Spring, South Carolina.
After teaching school for twenty years and rearing two children, she began to pursue her interest in art. When she was a small girl her single parent mother could not afford art lessons but Barbara remembered how excited she would be to get a new box of crayons.
She loved the smell, the feel and what those little sticks could do. Today she works in water media, in conjunction with collage and many other painting paraphernalia-like a box of crayons. She enjoys experimenting with the media.
She is a member of Anderson Artist Guild, Aiken Artist Guild, and Artist Guild of Ridge Spring.
She is recipient of numerous awards at the state and local level with latest award being "Best in Show" in North Augusta. Her art from the South Carolina Water Media Society Show traveled the state for one year. She also was guest artist at Pearl Gallery in Portland, Oregon and the Paper Mill Art Gallery of New Jersey.
Barbara's art includes collages made from various Asian papers collected from mission trips to Japan, Taiwan and Indonesia. She taught classes there and even had an art show in Japan.
