Having worked in the Winnipeg area as a Designer/Costumer, Yvonne has spent her careervbeing involved in the arts primarily in Theatre and Dance. She has many years of experience in design, sewing, tailoring, pattern making and film work. She has been fortunate to have worked on many projects that allowed her to express her creativity and grow as an artist.
This love of creating continues today as she delves into the world of fibre art. The process of creating is the most exciting, beginning with a drawing and adding layers of paint, fabric and thread. She has recently been painting on silk with dyes, loving the movement of the dyes on the silk. Much of her work is inspired by personal connections and life experiences.
Yvonne is a board member at Manitoba Arts Network(MAN) and is part of the executive team of Textile and Fibre Artists of Manitoba(TFAM).
