Bio

Yvonne, an Oxford based artist, has been sketching and painting since early childhood. She specialises in human portraits in pencil and coloured pencil, animal portraits in pencil and watercolour, and landscapes and botanical subjects in various media.  She paints primarily in watercolour, coloured ink and acrylics.

Yvonne gets inspiration from living in Oxford, and her love of nature and wildlife.  She enjoys travelling and has visited, Tuscany and Sicily several times in recent years to do landscape painting.  Yvonne finds the Italian landscape and architecture particularly beautiful, and finds much subject matter for her artwork on her visits to Italy.

Yvonne's aim is to provide original artworks to anyone who appreciates art in its many forms, whatever their social status. She believes art has a beneficial effect on our lives, and if her work brings joy to just one person in the world then she has done her job. Yvonne takes commissions, and can produce a landscape or portrait from a photograph, which she translates into artistic media in her own personal style.
