Born and raised in Whitewood, Saskatchewan, Yvonne calls upon her-first-hand knowledge of rural life to depict her prairie landscape paintings. Since 1981, Yvonne has painted with striking realism.The beauty she sees in abandoned homesteads, historic buildings and small towns set against the ever changing prairie sky inspires her interpretation of this beautiful province.

This style has earned high recognition in the art community and has made her one of Saskatchewan’s most sought after artists of prairie landscapes and historical buildings.

Yvonne’s focus is now on a corporate contract with the City of Regina where she provides a custom commissioned piece for years of service awards for city employees.

Yvonne’s paintings have been featured on several corporate calendars and art cards throughout Canada. Collectors from around the world have sought out her award-winning work and can he found in both private and corporate collections.

Architecture

I take inspiration from older structures as they are fast disappearing.These pieces of history have robust stories to tell, these stories spark my creativity. Not only do I enjoy these unique pieces of our history, I also enjoy paining clients personal homes and cabins.

Commission Work

Subjects vary when I take on a commissioned painting, from a special pet, an antique car, ones homestead that is long gone or a special vacation. The subject matter has endless possibilities when creating a personal piece of art that is dear to my clients heart. Some commissions take me out of my comfort zone, but the joy the artwork brings to my client when they see their personal piece, is very gratifying.

Landscape

Capturing the the natural beauty and detailed composition in ever changing landscapes is as subject matter that I truly enjoy and love to share with my clients.

Prairie

As a Saskatchewan country girl, this is a subject I am very comfortable with and can relate to. The beauty of our four seasons and our prairie sky, there is nothing like it.
