Yvonne lives in Totnes, Devon. Her paintings are inspired by the nature of the landscape around her. Yvonne's most recent work depicts the exploding kaleidoscopic hedgerows of Dartmoor. She says of her painting:
"I work very intuitively and instinctively, creating a space in which I allow the image to evolve and unravel. I enter the realm of the unknown and the marks becomes a following rather than a conscious choice. My paintings demand that I am courageous and openhearted and the process always involves risk. I surrender to the canvas and the image that emerges comes secondary to the actual process of art making. In this sense my work is my spirtual practice. My intention is that the images will awaken something beneath the surface that we recognise but cannot name. A deeper, secret place where mystery lies."
"I am fascinated by chaos and order existing simultaneously and the easy harmony that occurs in the natural world between these two forces. Also the relationship between fragility and strength. My canvas becomes a visual response to these elemental energies and polarities discovered within the environment and myself. My work is a celebration of the joy and ultimate purity of the human spirit and embraces all that is magical: the unseen is as relevant as the seen in the finished piece."
