Yvonne has a passion for giving her characters a unique personality in her popular paintings of Dog Portraits in watercolour and in her unique Santa Clauses.  Born and raised in the Georgian Bay area, she is a self-taught artist who loves painting local landscapes in oil and acrylic and enjoys expanding her knowledge through classes and workshops.  A love of photography has inspired Yvonne to learn more about this art form, and she is currently expanding her knowledge with a local camera club.

Yvonne is currently the Chair of the Board of Directors for the
Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts (BMFA).
She has been Chair of Collingwood Arts & Music Festival (CAMF)
for the past 11 years.

Yvonne has a home studio where her work may be seen through appointment only. She has had her artwork hanging in several businesses in Collingwood, and currently has some pieces hanging at Chrissy’s Spa and Salon (in the mini plaza next to Giant Tiger).
