Yvonne traveled extensively in her early twenties before pursuing a degree in philosophy and literature at  Brighton University.  After the birth of her daughter, Poppy, she spent several years living in Spain before returning to the UK to commence a four year Fine Art training in Sussex.  In 2002 she relocated to the south west where her career has blossomed into the inspiring celebration it is today.  Her work is now highly sought after and collectable.

I bought my picture and absolutely love it – makes me smile every day!
Claudine Mcmaster
We would definitely like Yvonne to name Megan’s painting please. I don’t believe I’ve seen a title of one of her works that I haven’t liked. The painting is truly beautiful Sarah….bright, warming, restful and serene…perfectly mirroring Megan’s contented and ‘sunny’ personality.
Penny Washbrook
Just wanted to write and let you know how much I enjoy your painting “Your Love Shines”. I bought it to celebrate my third anniversary with my partner, and to hang in my new home. I am a country girl and the wildness and warmth of the painting touches me. I don’t believe I know much about art – only what I like and don’t like – but I can honestly say that this is the first time I have knowingly had, and keep having an emotional response to a piece of work. I love it so much – it makes me smile everyday. Thankyou!

Anna Males
I just felt compelled to write to you as your art is the most beautiful I have ever seen. I walked past an art shop window in Dartmouth last year and was stopped dead in my tracks by one of your brightly coloured floral paintings. I adore it.
Jessica Needs
Painting has just arrived and is absolutely beautiful. It is beyond expectation. I am so pleased I was moved to tears. Please thank Yvonne for this lovely momento of my mum.
Clare Grange
