About Yvonne Gartside
There are no upcoming events
Yvonne has from early childhood spent a great deal of time in the bush of Southern Africa, capturing the images of the wildlife. Here one can still find an amazing variety of birds and game in wilderness areas that are almost unchanged since pre-historic times.
The vivid colours and textures from these wilderness surroundings form part of the influences in her current work, created in her home studio, based in Lancashire UK, her place of birth.
Yvonne has chosen the pastel medium for her work as it gives a soft velvety texture and richness that produce a most lifelike effect. As well as pastel medium, she has taken to painting Abstracts in oils and acrylics. Every canvas is painted on the sides in the colour or design of the painting, so there is no need to frame the artwork.
