Artist Statement Through her art practice Yvonne deconstructs, rebuilds or reinvents the everyday through photographs, memory and imagination. Many of her paintings are landscape based with a number of them harking back to her Scottish roots. Yvonne blends marks of impressionism and abstraction to the subjects that populate her works: landscapes, birds, animals, humans. Always interested in things ‘other’ she is continually exploring a sense of place and themes of belonging, often embracing the singular or outsider in an unexpected world of illusory spaces or imagined realms.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso
