MONDAY 7TH DECEMBER
As a visual artist and textile designer, I create experimental mixed media paintings, in which seamless colour blends and dynamic textural forms are created by allowing the paint to act and react without heavy influence and manipulation to control the outcome. Informed colour combinations and stories which convey a vibrancy, elegance, and complexity, are then transformed once printed onto fabric. With textiles as the final form, these ‘paintings’ can be draped, shaped, and reshaped, introducing fluidity and movement whether on the body or hung in interior spaces.
When we first came across Yvette's work, we were blown away by the colours and fluid nature of her paintings, as well as her beautiful photography and videos. Yvette tries to be as eco-conscious as possible in her design making process, which makes us love her work even more!
