Biography



Yvonne was born and raised in Pennsylvania where her high school art teacher recognized her love of art, especially oil painting.  He allowed her to skip study halls and paint, encouraging her and instilling that love she has today. That was 1975, and she still has that first painting. Soon after getting married, her husband’s job brought them to Central, SC where they raised their family. Life was busy, and there was no time to devote to art, but then the kids grew up and suddenly she found herself itching to pick up that paintbrush again. But, in 2001 at the age of 44, she had a stroke which affected the use of her left hand (she's a lefty). After therapy, regaining the use of her hand, and then realizing how fast life can change, she immediately started taking art classes and workshops.  Recently, Yvonne has tried her hand at plein air painting. She participated in her very first plein air event in Blowing Rock, NC in May 2019. Not only did she sell both of her paintings at the event, she won second place in the non-professional division. She is also a juried member of the SC Artisan Center in Walterboro, SC. Her paintings have won awards at juried shows, and she is a member of several local art guilds (just won first place in Anderson Art Guild Juried Show July 2020) .
