Art Bio

Yvonne Bertwistle (Vonnie) was born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Her father shared his passion for art with her and she has continued to develop her art skills with many skilled artists and tutors learning a variety of mediums and styles.

The subject matter she works with is deeply personal and is done intuitively with spontaneity using texture to build up depth, evolving often into the telling of a story or capturing of a moment. Her focus is predominantly building the feeling of the painting which evokes in the viewer. Vonnie works from her home studio in North Brisbane where she is continually experimenting with different mediums and is constantly learning and discovering.

Vonnie has received commissions to paint specifically in her style of work and has enjoyed art show success in recent years. Selection for show in this year’s Rotary Art Specutacular is yet another proud achievement for her.
