Being a long time resident of Scottsdale, AZ, and an avid hiker, she enjoys painting the blooming desert, which continually inspires her. "I will never lose my fascination with the lush Sonoran Desert - especially in the spring. I am forever intrigued by the way cactus needles and flowers capture light."
Yvonne also enjoys painting people and pets in casual, informal settings. "Watercolor is fresh and spontaneous, and is perfect for capturing a ?moment in time' in an individual's life. I am honored to paint people's children, parents, pets... I feel the love.
