Yvonne took up painting because her friend’s husband died and she wanted a hobby. The original choices were weight watchers, yoga or painting. The friend thankfully chose painting.
Yvonne started a beginners watercolour class in 2000 and got hooked.
In 2001, she was painting outside Morden Hall and the park organiser asked Yvonne if she would like to be a resident artist and take a place when their artist left. She accepted the offer.
Yvonne often gets commissions for holiday scenic views and London landmarks.
Since then Yvonne has grown as an International artist selling everywhere from the USA to Australia, Italy to Nigeria, Scotland to New Zealand.
