Biography:
After her education at the academy of arts Tilburg, the Netherlands, she worked for many years as a teacher in arts and art history. To improve her qualities as a painter she took lessons in 16e and 17e centuries oil painting

techniques. She works with open acrylics and oils. The textile fabrics in a lot of the paintings are personal stories. Because she likes to make narrative paintings her work has to be realistic. The stories cover gender equality, social issues, art history and personal issues.

Serendipity, time and technique each play their part during the process of creating the paintings. Because of the time consuming technique it is possible to add another idea during the process. This stands in strong contrast with all the images that we are surrounded with during the day. Most drawings often have less complicated stories and are sometimes made only to celebrate beauty.

Yvonne sees beauty as essential to art because our mind needs beauty to stay alive and vibrant.

Her other activities are: stained glass windows and glass fusion.

She is a member of the artist’s societies NABK  and Beroeps Organisatie Kunstenaars BOK in the Netherlands.  Manhattans International Art on line gallery
