Yvonne was brought up on a farm and spent much of her childhood in Ireland. Inspired by the world and with a thirst for exploration and discovery she traveled widely in her twenties, living and working in Australia, Africa and Europe. One of her most formative and fulfilling periods was spent with a horse-drawn community in England, discovering ancient, sacred and forgotten parts of our land.
Her relentless spirit of curiosity and deep enquiry led her to pursue a degree in Philosophy and Literature at Brighton University. When her daughter Poppy reached school age she took the opportunity to follow her passion and trained in fine art in Sussex. She has been painting ever since. She now lives in Devon with her husband, fellow artist Mike Boyer and their four children.
