For over the past 20 years I have been a professional artist in the medium of painting. I studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at University of NSW, Collage of Fine Arts, Sydney. I worked in the film and photographic industries to then come back full circle to my love of painting. From this love I have exhibited in over 35 solo and group shows in galleries within Australia. Through my work I explore the essence of life – awareness, love, and the source of our being.

In recent years I have taught art as well as meditation classes in Sydney and Northern NSW. Since then I have combined the two to create a fun and relaxing abstract painting, with some meditation, day class. The purpose of this is to allow people to let go of mind ways of being and open to the natural essence they are. From this space the painting is creative, free flowing, and enjoyable. There are no rules as one opens to joy and creation.

I have also created meditation classes (see dates on Classbento website). These came about from my love of being with people and opening to the truth of who we are - awareness. I have explored various avenues to open to awareness and have created classes and one to one sessions from opening myself up to what is real. Behind all the stories and different life situations we are all the one self - awareness. I love that we are awakening more rapidly on this planet in this moment of great change. We are coming back home from within.

I currently create through painting, writing, art and meditation classes, and also provide one to one awareness sessions for people to open to our true self. Whatever medium I use, the purpose behind it is my love to open more deeply to truth and freedom. I am deeply interested in people awakening to who they are. Our creative endeavors are an extension of our natural essence.

Yvette was warm and welcoming to everyone to joined the class. I would have liked to have a class discussion on colours as I was new to art but, overall a lovely day.

cosy venue with everything provided. Yvette was kind, friendly, encouraging and a good teacher. She showed us a variety of techniques and provided time to practice before we moved on to the canvas. She even gave us some guided meditation to relax into the task. Thanks Yvette

I really enjoyed this class. Yvette was very attentive and knowledgeable offering advice and help when needed. I was taught different applications for acrylics using different tools, colour combinations and the best type of materials to use.
Overall a very enjoyable relaxing day with a bit of meditation and yummy morning tea provided.
