About the Exhibit
An avid hiker both on Bay Area trails and in the Sierra Nevada backcountry, Yvonne has witnessed and recorded many vistas of infinite beauty, interpreting them using transparent watercolor. A native of the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada she is in awe of the stature and grandness of mountains and mountain meadows that host the wild flowers of California. She paints local flowers and gardens with the same sense of adventure.
