Yvonne gained a BA Hons degree from Central St Martins in Fine Art sculpture. She continued her post graduate studies here and then went on to qualify in adult education.On moving to the Cotswolds , with its rich history of the woollen trade, she became interested in using wool and needle felt as a medium for expression, taking the form of 3 dimensional landscapes.
Yvonne has taught in schools and colleges and is offering workshops in needle felt with mindfulness, having practiced mindfulness herself for over 10 years, understands its therapeutic and stress relieving qualities. It allows us to tune in to our true selves,offering a state of peace and calm.
Her work explores the soft textures, subtle blends of the wool combined with bold, bright colours with shimmering light effects.
Yvonne works from life, taking photographs to translate into dry needlefelted landscapes. The autobiographical works have a three dimensional quality, and record her time, in the Cotswolds and travels abroad, encapsulating those special memories.
