Born in Ireland, Yvonne studied at Dublin’s National College of Art and Design. She moved to Australia in 1982, where she continued her studies at the National School of Art in East Sydney.
In 1990 Yvonne moved to Port Macquarie to explore her art practice in more relaxed surroundings.
Inspired by random snippets of past visual memories and being in the NOW Yvonne’s process of applying texture, glazing and layering brings a powerful beauty to her translucent artworks.
Her works are compelling and invite you into their very core. Yvonne starts a working cycle by layering delicate washes and rich textures on prepared canvas. Whispers of ideas aid the process, she delves deeper, making connections, adding strokes of line and colour from which the soul of the work can arise.
