About Yvonne

Yvonne in her studio

Yvonne has been a lifelong artist and art lover.  With a background in art education and art therapy, she returned to painting in 2014, 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 has been deeply inspired by living in the village of Cushendall, on the stunning Antrim coast of Northern Ireland, near where she has built a studio. The countryside, seaside and garden are her happy places.  She has lived in the UK since 2005.  Additionally, her childhood in the Arizona desert and living also on the west coast of the US are still influencing her work.

Yvonne's focus is on filling her paintings with the joyful energy she experiences in nature, which can be felt by the viewer. Owners of her work often comment on the peace and happiness they feel, living with her work.
